Created in 2015, the annual Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards contest showcases the best of wildlife photography, while also calling to attention the threats faced by the wildlife around us.


An owl is bored out of his tree. A kangaroo shreds on an air guitar. A young greenfinch gets an almighty bollocking. And two bear buddies are genuinely thrilled to see each other.

No, this isn’t some sort of David Attenborough fever dream. It’s all a part of this year’s Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards.

With thousands of entries from around the world every year, there’s no shortage of delightful images. You can find all of this year’s finalists on the competition’s website
