Comedy Wildlife photo judges got it wrong

Who knew there was a Comedy Wildlife Photography competition? Endless opportunities for hilarious photos, yet these were the top three winners. The first one is cute. But comic? I don’t see it. Both Second and Third Place are far funnier, IMHO, although admittedly the judges had a tough job.  What’s sad is all those that didn’t/couldn’t make the top three. I’ve included a few of my favorites, but to see them all you’ll have to go to the The Weather Channel website. Trust me, it’s worth your time.

  1. LOVE the “Dancing Sifaka.” Gotta go check out the site now.

  2. I love them, and can’t spot smiling after watching them! ^_^

  3. Rush Hour was my favorite. That little guy, running so frantically in his bare feet….made me think of all of caught in the Christmas rush!

  4. The seal wins my vote. Is this the laughing Buddha is disguise?

  5. I’ve got to see the rest of them (One is cute – but that second one is hilarious!)
