Look behind you! Hilarious moments photos were ruined by accidental photobombs – from a cheeky beluga whale to a cheerleading trick gone wrong
- Social media users have shared photographs of extraordinary photobombs
- A holidaymaker in the pool was upstaged by a woman picking her underwear
- Another snap captures the moment a partygoer took a tumble down the stairs
It’s easy to spend so long perfecting your pose in front of the camera that you forget to double check the background of a photo before clicking ‘upload’, as these photos prove.
Social media users from around the world have shared hilarious examples of times they were unintentionally upstaged by a rogue photbomber or eye-catching detail, with the very best snaps shared in a gallery on website Wacko Jaco.
One woman channelled her inner supermodel with a dramatic pool shot while on holiday, only to realise on closer inspection that a woman nearby was picking a wedgie.
Elsewhere, two mounted police officers were upstaged by a horse when they posed for a photo for members of the public.
Another snap of a man and a woman smiling together at a party is completely transformed once you spot the partygoer falling down the stairs behind them.
