Hilarious Images From Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2021 Winners
These amusing shots from the annual photography competition will make you smile if you are having a bad day
The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards has been bringing us heartwarming and adorably comical photographs from the wild and the winners of 2021 are definitely going to put a smile on your face. Founded in 2015, this annual contest allows wildlife photographers to share the joy and humor present in the animal kingdom.
Alike the previous editions, the contest received thousands of hilarious entries this year as well. However, British photographer Ken Jensen won the grand title for his appropriately titled photo “Ouch!” featuring a monkey sitting on a support wire. The animal showed signs of aggression but the impeccable timing of the shot gives it a totally different story.
Let’s see the entertaining images from the winners of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2021.
“Ouch!” – Although this monkey is shouting in aggression, the perfect timing of the shot paints a completely different story.
