Here’s what a set of 3 photos looked like while he was reviewing his photos on his computer:

“I nearly deleted this out-of-focus photo before I noticed it appeared to be focused on something tiny in the foreground,” Jake tells PetaPixel. Zooming in closer, he realized that a small bug flying through the frame had hijacked his camera’s autofocus and stolen it from his dogs:

“My best guess is that it’s a blackfly or mosquito, being that it’s backwoods Ontario in the spring,” Jake says. “Somehow my phone chose to focus on it.”
