Award-winning wildlife photographs usually feature an elk set against a backdrop of trees or a lion during golden hour. Not these. The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, founded in 2015 by wildlife photographers Tom Sullam and Paul Joynson-Hicks, encourage humans to celebrate the hilarious frames created in the field.
The 2018 entries didn't disappoint—think a face-palming grizzly, a smiling lion, and some dancing Komodo dragons. The overall winner will be announced on November 15 and will be invited on a one-week safari in Maasai Mara, Kenya with Alex Walker.
