Wildlife Photography To Make You Smile

From time to time we post something completely different …
Like these photographs from the 2021 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards


'Can I Play You A Tune'
The Flautist - Ground Squirrel - R Kranitz


'He Went That Way'
Directing Penguin - C Taylor


'I Guess Summers Over'
Pigeon - J Speirs

The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards was co-founded in 2015 by professional photographers Paul Joynson-Hicks MBE and Tom Sullam who wanted to create a competition that focused on the lighter side of wildlife photography and help promote wildlife conservation through humour.

This year, the competition is supporting Save Wild Orangutans by donating 10% of its total net revenue to the charity. The initiative safeguards wild orangutans in and around Gunung Palung National Park, Borneo.

“We were overwhelmed with the number and quality of entries we received this year, with well over 7,000 photos submitted from every corner of the globe,” says Paul Joynson-Hicks. “It was an amazing turnout, especially given the impact of the pandemic. The huge number of images we receive every year illustrates the appetite there is to engage with conservation and reminds us that wildlife truly is incredible and hilarious and, we must do all we can to protect it.”

I have quite a few funny animal and bird photos, mainly through the bad photography rather than animals in funny situations. The pigeon with the face mask made me laugh.
