These Are The Year's Funniest Animal Photos

We could all use a little laughter.

The animal kingdom can be a pretty hilarious place if you know where to look.

That’s the point of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, which honor the best shots of animals doing some seriously funny things.

The award, which is now in its second year, shows that humor isn’t just limited to humans, said Tanzania-based photographer and contest creator Tom Sullam.

“The contest celebrates great photography of wildlife, but with the humorous element thrown in,” he told PBS.org. “We wanted to have a photo competition that was positive and upbeat but with a serious message about wildlife conservation attached to it.”

Judges picked 40 finalists after burrowing their way through more than 2,000 animal images from 75 different countries.

Angela Bohlke took the winning shot, which features a fox falling face first into the snow at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.

“The picture shows a red fox hunting for his morning breakfast, a small rodent, known as a vole,” she told the Sun. “This photograph is from one of the times he unfortunately, however, hilariously missed. On the third try, he finally succeeded.” 

For her efforts, Bohlke wins a one-week photography safari in Kenya.
