"Photobomb" was named the Word of the Year in 2014 by the Collins English Dictionary, and is defined as "to intrude into the background of a photograph without the subject's knowledge." The word is fairly new to the English language and has received much attention due to both the wide use of smart phone photography and also due to the ease with which photos can now be shared on the internet. Since, entire sections of websites, if not whole websites themselves, have been dedicated in uploading and sharing photos featuring hilarious and strange photobombs. You've no doubt experienced it yourself: you're about to take a great photo and are busy planning, organizing, and timing it just right, when someone jumps in and ruins (or improves) your picture. Or maybe you've been the photobomber, jumping into photos? Regardless of which side of photo you're on, here are some of the most easily recognizable, hilarious, and iconic photobombs found on the internet - from our favorite animal photobombs to our favorite celebrity photobombs, and all the strangeness in between.

1 The Friendly Stringray Photobomb
Perhaps one of the most famous photobombs of all time (and the photo that likely created the word "photobomb") features a group of girls who appear to be taken by surprise by a friendly stingray. The girls were visiting Stingray City in the Cayman Islands, a popular tourist destination for snorkeling with and feeding stingrays, when they were surprised by a stingray at just the right moment - right when they were taking a photo! If you look closely at the photo, you can see someone's hairline peaking out from behind the stingray, which was probably a friend playing a trick on the unsuspecting girls. Although they seem perfectly horrified, the results of this joke have gone viral, making it one of the most famous photobombs out there.
