A University of Chester student's picture of a seagull 'photobombing' the world famous Red Arrows has sparked a national internet sensation.
First-year photography student Jade Coxon, 18, captured the incredible shot of the gull, which appears to be the latest addition to the Royal Air Force aerobatic team, at the Llandudno Air Show last Saturday.
And, since she posted the snap online a day later, it has acquired more than 1m views, with some dubbing it 'the best photobomb ever'.
The picture clearly shows eight of the Red Arrows in tight formation trailing their famous vapour, but where the ninth plane should be, an intrepid seagull can be seen holding the formation in place and with his own vapour trail.

Jade, whose father is a professional photographer, couldn't believe her luck getting the perfectly-timed shot, but is staying modest about her achievement although she is delighted the picture has since been seen all over the world including Australia and New Zealand.
She explained she was there to take pictures of the air show and was trying to get shots of both the Red Arrows and the seagulls before the two came together in spectacular fashion!
Professor Neil Grant, Head of Art and Design at the University of Chester, told The Chronicle: “We are all very proud of Jade and her fantastic photograph which has been seen all around the world.
"The interest and reaction to the photograph is an excellent confidence boost to Jade who is a first year student on our very successful Photography degree programme.
" We hope she will go onto pursue a successful photography career once she completes her studies here and this is a great way to start!”
