Wildlife Photography : Such Fun

From time to time we post something completely different … 
Like these photographs from the 2020 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards

The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards were founded by Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam, both professional photographers and passionate conservationists. In addition to providing some light-hearted relief, the competition aims to highlight the extremely important message of wildlife conservation in an engaging and positive way, working with competition partner The Born Free Foundation.

Why not share your favourite in the comments below!
As well as these three, I like 'O Sole Mio' 'Hide and Seek' and 'Smiley'

All the best Jan
