Not only do those bastards chew up wires, steal bird food, and dig up flowers, they are getting into the whole photo-bombing act.

A cheeky squirrel in Alberta’s Banff National Park has gone viral after stealing the spotlight in a tourist’s photo.

Melissa Brandts, who was visiting from Minnesota, had set up her camera on a tripod to capture her and her husband, Jackson, in front of picturesque Lake Minnewanka in May.

“We had our camera set up on some rocks and were getting ready to take the picture when this curious little ground squirrel appeared, became intrigued with the sound of the focusing camera and popped right into our shot!” she wrote.

The ground squirrel became the focus of the picture as the couple faded into the background.

Jackson Brandts took a few more shots using a remote-control shutter.

“A once in a lifetime moment! We were laughing about this little guy for days!” wrote his wife.

Blurring the painting in the background is brilliant.
