What is Photobombing?

For those new to the term, photobombing is slang for when someone puts themselves into someone's photo. It can happen right before the photographer clicks the shutter button during weddings or parties. Usually, after the photo was taken, the photobomber will quickly get away before the subjects even know that it happened. 

Wikipedia's official definition: 

Photobombing is the act of purposely putting oneself into the view of a photograph, often in order to play a practical joke on the photographer or the subjects. Photobombing has received significant coverage since 2009. In discussing a "stingray photobomb" picture that went viral, Andrea DenHoed suggests that the photobomb label "implies a narrative of surreptitious sabotage," although in the sense of unintended and/or initially unnoticed people in the background of spoiled photographs, photobombs have existed for much of the history of photography.
