Hilarious Finalists of the 2016 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards

A smiling frog, a fox face planting in the snow and a warrior reptile are among 40 finalists for The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards in 2016.

This year’s competition featured over 2,200 hilarious entries from around the world, up from 1,502 entries in last year’s inaugural contest. Winning entries will be selected by a panel of judges that includes wildlife experts and a comedian (of course). The images make us laugh, but there’s a serious side to the whole endeavour–to raise awareness for the need to protect the environment and habitats for wildlife. (see 2015 Comedy Wildlife here)
