While we’re struggling with climate change and animal conservation, photographers have still managed to find the funny side of things at the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards.
The finalists for 2019 have just been shared, and I don’t envy the judges who have to pick a winner!
The competition is open to photographers around the world, and it’s free to enter. All you need is a camera and some hilarious wildlife and you could be next year’s winner!
The photographers don’t just have camera skills, but they’ve also captured the animals in exactly the right moment to share with us how amazing animals really can be in the wild. So here are a few of our favourite finalists:
