Parrotfish Photo Bomb in Key West

Undersea Photo Bomb Phenomenon

Yes, the hilarious phenomenon known as photo bombing has now gone beneath the waves to a world where anything from a toothy shark to a funny-faced ray or a grinning dolphin can pop – or float - unexpectedly into a picture. A fish swimming in front of a diver’s face can give the curious effective of a sort of reverse mermaid, with the head of a fish and the body of a woman, while some of the scarier marine creatures can give the impression that the innocently grinning subject is about to be devoured. Just keep your eye out for wandering undersea creatures that might have a taste for fame; the key is to be quick and grab the priceless shot before they dart away.

But there’s no need to worry; snorkeling guides always keep an eye on the water and are familiar with all the local marine life.
