I hope that this topic has not been done......

we all know the moment, you are taking a perfectly good photo, when all of a sudden a unwanted guest appears in your frame, grrr!!

this thread is for people to post their photobombed photos.

 

i will start things off with a pesky little sandpiper that decided that it was more important then the shoveler and stilt behind it!!!

Too funny ...This is a great thread!  This is a photo that I was taking of an American Coot when a Pekin Duck decided to swim by:

Not my photo, but probably the most well-known photobomb in ABA birding history.

When that video was first released, I watched it over and over again. It was awesome, and Matt Daw must've felt so shocked and happy!

Can you post the link to the video. And I've never seen that photobomb. What are the two birds and which one is photobombing the other?

Where's the Least Bittern? It's not in the photo but I do see a bird in front of the Rail.

I looked at the video and realized that. It just looks so tiny and way too small for a Least Bittern in that photo. In that photo it looks like a songbird!

The one I saw looked pretty big. And I know what you'll probably say: It must've been an American Bittern. It was not. It was a Least. The way it looked was for sure a Least. If you want I can post photos.

Sure. PM me.

The Least that I found in FL was tiny.

How far away were you when you viewed it, Isabel? The first ones I saw were at about 70 yards, and I couldn't really tell how small they were. Later that year though, I accidentally flushed one from about ten feet, and boy, they are TINY!!
