Here Are The 14 Winners of This Year’s Comedy Wildlife Photography

They are just as wild and funny as anyone would expect.

A new year is on its way, and it is only understandable for people to look back at the things that happened. While some moments are deemed sad, others are worth being proud of. And, oh, let us not forget the funny ones!

Speaking of funny ones, we here at Elite Readers decided it is time to round up the funniest photos of the year. The only catch, however, is that we are about to feature the wildlife. Interestingly, there is an actual competition for this sort of thing. It is even meant to spread awareness about wildlife conservation, and it is called Comedy Wildlife Photography.

Photographer Paul Joynson-Hicks, one of the founders of the competition, was quoted saying:

“It’s been a real success this year, the quality of images has improved substantially and we have had more entries and from more countries.”

Apart from showing you the funny side of these creatures, the competition aims to spread the word about wildlife conservation. And it is somehow doing a marvelous job.

Well, without further ado, here are this year’s winners!

This guy here is definitely a lady’s man.

They say in this life you got to do something that would make you proud. That when you look back on your life, you can open a beer, smile, and say: “I did it.” This is exactly what Diego the Tortoise did, except that this action was somewhat legendary.

Why? That is because his species would not be here if not for him. The centenarian was responsible for a very important job in the past, as he was among the remaining males of his species (there were 3 of them) called the Española tortoise. They can be found on the Galapagos Island where their population seemed low, putting themselves in near extinction.
