Each year, the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards is flooded with snapshots of nature supplying some accidental humour at its own expense.
2018 is no different.
41 finalists across eight categories were whittled down to just 14 winning and highly commended photos and one video.
The winners of this year’s coveted awards range from dancing bears to peaking owls — and they’re all pretty hilarious.
The overall winner award was handed to Mary McGowan for her shot of a surprised-looking squirrel entitled “Caught in the act,” which also swept the Affinity People’s Choice Award and the Alex Walker’s Serian Creatures of the Land Award.
