The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards are an opportunity to have a little chuckle at the same time as seeing some amazing wildlife.
The photos are lighthearted and meant to be hilarious. This unusual competition is a combination of funny animal portraits and strong technical skills.
One popular type of photo is animals acting in human-like ways. For example, one image shows a gorilla picking its nose for the camera.
Or a seal enjoying a giant belly laugh.
What about the baby hippo who is hilariously acting out because he it can’t seem to get the birds off its back.
Confusion has also been a winner, for example, the deer who can’t seem to grasp the concept of camouflage.
Its founder, Paul Joynson-Hicks, explains what inspired him to start the event.
“I often enter wildlife photography competitions but I love seeing the funny pictures. Strangely enough, they are harder to come by than you might think.”
