RALEIGH-DURHAM, NC (CNN) -- Photobombs are usually something to laugh at, but this one might bring tears to your eyes.
That's eight-year-old Joshua Bass participating in Friday's picture day at his elementary school in Durham.
When the photographer showed Joshua the finished product on his camera, the third grader was surprised at who was standing behind him.
He turned around to see his dad, Corporal James Bass. Bass had been deployed for a year overseas but returned in time to surprise his son.
