When a vacationing Canadian couple set up this timer shot on their camera in 2009, they had no idea that they were about to make internet history! A squirrel, curious about the sound of the camera shutter, popped into their shot unannounced. After the couple submitted this photo to a photo contest, the image spread throughout the web, and soon people were adding the squirrel bomber to their own photographs. Crasher Squirrel has been added to countless family photos, celebrity images, and famous works of art.
