The couple had set the timer on their camera while posing at a lakeside in a national park in Canada.

Just as they were about to be captured on camera the cheeky squirrel popped up in the foreground and stole the show.

Mrs Brandts said: "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."

The picture was submitted to the website of America's National Geographic magazine.

'It was a once in a lifetime moment - we were laughing about this little guy for days!' said Mrs Brandts.

:rotfl: That is one hysterical photograph. I went to the zoo one time (either Indianapolis or Louisville) and was getting ready to take a photo of some kind of critter, and there were several of them running around. As I started to focus the camera, one stopped, stood up, looked at me, and as soon as the shutter clicked, he took off.
Thanks MM, that's hilarious!
All it takes for the forces of evil to rule this world is for enough good people to do nothing.
