A demure lemur covering its mouth in surprise, a seal having a hard time facing bullying penguins, dancing polar bears and straddling squirrels are among the amusing entries from across the world chosen as finalists by the jury. Some seem to be having a whale of a time. Others, grinning for the camera, or caught in “gotcha” embarrassing moment. Yet, although they all seem so “human,” they are wild animals immortalized in photos for the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. Founded by Tanzania-based British – photographers Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam, the award aims to raise awareness of wildlife conservation through the power of laughter.
The winner will be named the 2018 Comedy Wildlife Photographer of the Year and win a weeklong safari with Alex Walker’s Serian in Kenya’s Masai Mara.
Let’s see the funnest moment from winner in the previous years:
