Sea turtle. Queensland, Australia. Mark Fitzpatrick/Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2020
If this past year has proven anything, it’s that animals are the best free internet therapy there is. From virtual zoo tours to TikTok challenges, animals have been an invaluable source of entertainment—and relief—during the pandemic.
On that note, we wanted to share our favorites from the 2020 finalists of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, which will be announcing its winners in mid-October. The contest has been shaking up the all-too-serious field of nature photography since 2015, but this year it feels even more necessary.
Now, without further delay, some serial killer fish, hungover penguins, and profane, pissed-off sea turtles for your “educational” benefit.
