The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards just closed entries for 2017, and will announce the lucky winner later this month. The lucky winner receives a photo safari trip to Kenya, where their Instagram and photography profile will be lit with local wildlife.
Some animals get caught mid-yawn, others throwing a tantrum or taking a wrong step. Some animals are just funny due to unfortunate genetics, but we still love them.
