Let’s face it: animals don’t care if you’re trying to take a photo or you’re making a video call. If our work-from-home culture has taught us anything, it’s that pets are curious and aren’t afraid to interrupt a photo or video to see what they’re missing.

Well, it turns out that wild animals have similar attitudes to our domesticated dogs and cats. As many wildlife photographers share, creatures large and small want to see what these people are doing with their cameras.
Joaquim Campa has compiled an extensive list of animals that disrupt wildlife photographers in a Twitter thread that is currently going viral. The featured images are, to put it simply, lovely. Foxes, meerkats, leopard cubs, penguins and even a large seal can stare into the camera or climb to the top of the photographer in question.
Sometimes, animals get behind the camera and become photographers. But whatever their groundbreaking style, it’s impossible not to scroll through the whole subject and “awww” while marvelling at these playful and curious creatures.
If you’re wondering how many images of this type can be, the answer is a lot. Campa did his homework; His thread features an incredible amount of visuals. Exactly 40! It’s a timeline palate cleanser — something we can all use anytime, anywhere. Scroll down to see our favourites.
