Animals Photographed In The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards Were Not Shy!

Animals can be mischievous little creatures and they sure showed that with many of the photographs submitted to the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards this year. 

The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards are in its inaugural year and has 1,502 entries from 52 different countries. The new competition was created by wildlife photographer Paul Joynson-Hicks who is based in Tanzania. 

40 Finalists have been chosen and a winner and two runner-ups will be announced at an awards ceremony in London on November 11. 

In the entries, you will see everything from ducks having a bad hair day, to a laughing seal, and even a gorilla that is giving the photographer the finger! We hope you enjoy these photos as much as we do!
