A stingray didn’t waste a moment to photobomb a little boy who was enjoying his trip to the zoo.

Three-year-old Gene Harris-Mussard, from Winchester, was visiting Chessington World of Adventures Resort in London with his family and was enthralled with the aquarium section of the zoo.

Beaming for the camera, little Gene was delighted when a smiling stingray swam over to quickly photobomb him in the picture on June 8.

Cousin Jolie Dickinson, 18, who took the photo, said: “I’m well chuffed with my photography skills. I’m proud that I managed to get Gene to stand still and smile long enough to get a good picture.”

The sweet photo will serve as a fun memory of Gene’s first trip out of lockdown with his cousin Jolie and their grandfather Stanley Mussard, 66.

Gene’s mother, Helen Mussard, 41, said: “Gene loves the picture.

“It was his first outing after lockdown and Gene said that the stingray was really happy to see everyone again since restrictions had lifted.

“It’s a lovely picture—we’ll probably get it framed!”
