Have you ever tried to snap a picture of a gorgeous animal out in the wild? It’s not always easy. Nine times out of 10, that shot turns out blurry or you end up with a random animal booty pic because the sneaky critter decided to turn and run away just as you were about to snag a breathtaking photo.
Well, no need to keep those accidental butt photos hidden any longer. Scientists and animal lovers from across the world are now sharing their favorite rear end photos on Twitter with the hashtag #WildBum.
It all started on Feb. 11 with one tweet of a musk duck bum.

Some photos got a little too up close and personal.
