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.
We have singled out ten of our favourites.
We feel you, buddy.
"Move! I saw him first!"
"Good evening, Clarisse... I mean, heeeeey!"
"Go to your room and don't you dare come out until that place is spotless, d'you hear?"
Shredding. Positively shredding.
"If I have to hear one more time how frustrating it is for you not to have bagged Taylor Swift tickets, Sharon, I will say goodbye to the branch."
"This is doing me a fascinate."
There are no words for how cute this is.
