Wildlife photography documents various forms of wildlife in their natural habitat. It is a serious business and provides us with rare and engaging insights into the natural world.
However, wildlife photographers often capture the humorous side of nature as well, where animals tend to be unwittingly funny. The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards has been aiming to showcase such pictures for the last few years. Every year, they present a wonderful array of photographs demonstrating the comedic moments of wild animals in their natural surroundings.
The idea behind this unique competition, according to the website, is that “humor and positivity have a major role to play in building awareness, interest and eventually action towards protecting the animals that live on this planet.”
Here, are some of the best entries from 2019’s Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. This is nature at its funniest!
Clancy's comment: Love most of these, especially the young chimp kicking back. Thank you to the photographers for sharing their work.
