It was supposed to be memento of their time snorkelling in the idyllic Cayman Islands.
But the picture quickly became a moment of sheer panic for these three friends when a stingray decided it wanted a piece of the action.
As Sarah Bourland, Natalie Zaysoff and Kendall Harlan smiled for the camera, the fish lurched out of the sea and landed on their backs just in time for the shutter.
Say cheese! ((From left) Sarah Bourland, Natalie Zaysoff and Kendall Harlan had just been snorkelling in the Cayman Islands when this stingray leapt on their backs during a photo op
While the stingray is seen posing calmly for the shot, the terror in the women”s faces is all-too plain to see.
The photograph has gone viral on image sharing site Imgur, while Reddit commenters are up-voting it as well.
The image originated from Stingray City, a popular Caymans tourist destination where swimmers and snorkellers are encouraged to interact with and feed the sea creatures.
Ms Harlan, from Austin, Texas, said: “We took a trip to Stingray Island. We just got off the boat and took a nice planned out photo with us holding it. While the photographer was taking the nice picture, another stingray popped up in the photo behind us.”
Calm waters: Just a moment earlier, the girls are all smiles
On closer inspection, however, it appears the stingray might have had some help from a prankster.
A man”s head can be seen in the background and it is likely he is holding the fish in place.
Either way, it”s a very funny moment.
The incredible photo is the latest image to go viral in the popular trend called photobombing, in which posed photos are rudely interrupted by an uninvited guest.
