A face-planting fox, a law-abiding cheetah and a gurning zebra are among the subjects of the winning entries to this year’s Comedy Wildlife Photography awards.
The winners were chosen from a pool of thousands for a combination of excellent photographic skill and perfect comedy timing.
But there’s a serious message behind the amusing snaps – the awards also aim to raise awareness of the importance of global conservation efforts.
Judge Tom Sullam said: “Animals can make you laugh without even knowing why. It is the anthropomorphic behaviour.
“There is also such a broad range of animals, from so many countries, that it really raises the awareness of conservation on a global scale.
“Entries came from Argentina to Sweden, from the USA to Hungary, Australia to Russia, China to South Africa, and everywhere in between!”
