Hilarious finalists in this year’s Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards

NDTV – The finalists for this year’s Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards have been announced – and they are guaranteed to brighten up your day.

The top 44 images for 2020 include a fox negotiating with a mouse, a grinning fish, a photo-bombing giraffe and a grumpy sea turtle, among others. Entries for this year’s edition of Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards feature animals from across the globe – from the lions of Kalahari Desert to the snow monkeys of Japan.

The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards were founded by Paul Joynson Hicks and Tom Sullam, both professional photographers and passionate conservationists. The global online photography competition aims to showcase some seriously funny images of the Earth’s most amazing wildlife.

The competition also aims to “highlight the extremely important message of wildlife conservation in an engaging and positive way”.
