When we think of professional photos of natural elements, we certainly think of “perfect” images, the result of hours and hours of work and carefully studied positions, typical of documentaries, specialized sites, and magazines.

But this is not always how we can immortalize nature and the extraordinary creatures that inhabit it. We realize this every year when the finalists for the Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards are announced, which not only address issues related to the protection of the environment and wildlife but also make us laugh out loud. The reason? Just look at the snaps we’ve rounded up below, or those shared on the contest’s official channels, to see why. The photographers in the competition manage to capture wild animals in hilarious poses, in which they almost seem to imitate us, or want to tell us something. Are you ready to discover them?
