Animal Photos that will leave you LOL-ing from the First Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards

If funny animals are your thing (like the rest of the world.)

Every year, prestigious wildlife photography competitions like the British Wildlife Photography Awards or Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photography of the World award the year’s best photos by the best international photographers. These award-giving bodies always award the photos and photographers that perfectly capture the beautiful and natural landscape of wildlife and its creatures.

The Comedy Wildlife Photography (CWP), though, begs to defy this. The CWPA chooses to spotlight the lighter and more unique side to wildlife photography: funny photos of animals in their natural habitat. 2015 is the debut year of CWPA and the winners below will definitely leave you LOL-ing.

This photo of a running hamster by Julian Rad is the gold prize winner. He was awarded a trophy, a 7-day safari in southern Tanzania, and a Nikon D750 DSLR with a 24-85mm lens.
