Two boys surfing at a California beach last week may have gotten photobombed by a shark in the newest viral image making the Internet rounds.
June Emerson and her 12-year-old twins spent Friday swimming and surfing at Manhattan Beach, but had no clue that they were just feet away from a shadowy, shark-like animal.
As her son Quinn and his friend caught some waves, Emerson sat on the beach and took pictures. It wasn't until later that night when she was reviewing her pictures that she noticed a third figure in the shot.
"It was quite a shock to see. I'm not sure what it was, but it definitely scared me when I thought it might be a shark," she told KTLA.com. "Many local surfers and lifeguards have seen this and believe it to be a shark. Of course, I told my kids it was dolphin, as we live at the beach and are in the waters here almost daily."
Suriously scurry! Did you see this shark photobomb?!?! http://t.co/I8LfFHiy12

Emerson uploaded the picture to Facebook with the caption, "Another beautiful day at the beach. Big waves and apparently Big Fish! (Look into wave to right of Quinn Emerson, who's out catching a few!) — Manhattan Beach, California."
Manhattan Beach is not an altogether uncommon place for shark sightings, experts told KTLA.
