People Interrupt Mr. Squirrel's Holiday Shot!

No wait a minute I think you need to reverse that. Cheeky rodent becomes star of couple's vacation photo.
In the isolated beauty of the Canadian lakes, this couple thought it was safe to take a picture without a stranger wandering into shot.

But they hadn't reckoned on this curious interloper deciding to steal the limelight.

Melissa Brandts explained: "My husband and I were exploring Lake Minnewanka in Banff National Park-Canada when we stopped for a timed picture of the two of us. 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! A once in a lifetime moment! We were laughing about this little guy for days!!"
