What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Animal Funnies

These are some of the winning entries from the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. Who knew there was such a thing?

“The number and quality of the entries was fantastic. The finalists should be very proud of themselves, as should the animals they photographed, simply for looking so funny. Sadly there is no way of telling them.” -Hugh Dennis

These wonderful, lively photos highlight the technical proficiency (and good luck) of the photographers and joyfully celebrate the hilarity of the natural world. Photo credits are below each photo (but the captions are all me).

Highly Commended, Alison Buttigieg / Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards

Highly Commended, Graham McGeorge / Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards

Sissie was so sick of her stupid brothers invading her room. Didn’t they see the keep out sign? She just wanted to be left alone to write in her Nick Jonas journal.

What? Is there something on my face? Oh god, just get it off me.
