The finalists for this year’s Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards have been announced, each showing the power of anthropomorphism.
A fish that seems to smile, a bear giving a friendly wave from afar, and a very cranky sea turtle – this year’s finalists show animals in relatable comedy moments.
In addition to providing slight relief, the competition aims to highlight the hugely important message of wildlife conservation in an engaging and positive way, working with competition partner The Born Free Foundation.
The winners will be announced at an online awards ceremony on October 22.
In the meantime, here are some entries from finalists that might make you laugh.
