Pufferfish photobombs diver in Hawaii in amazing shot 

A diver off Hawaii’s Kohala coast was upstaged by a photobombing pufferfish.

Regan Mizuguchi was taking a photo as he dived with his GoPro camera when he caught the attention of the scene-stealing sea creature.

"I had placed my GoPro camera on the ocean floor and was experimenting taking images when I noticed the fish bobbing through the water," he told Metro. “It was only after I reviewed the images that I noticed it had completely blocked out my face in one of the shots. I couldn’t believe how perfect it was.”
