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.
In this the first year of the competition, 1,502 entries were submitted from 52 countries. The Grand Prize winner received a photographic safari in Tanzania with Joynson-Hicks as guide and tutor and a Nikon D750 camera with a 24-85 mm lens. Silver and Bronze winners received cameras.

LOVE the “Dancing Sifaka.” Gotta go check out the site now.
Oh, the fun you can have with captioning those. Love ’em! I would love to capture something like that (via photography, not physically capture).
Yep, the sifaka (lemur) is my favorite. Looks like he’s doing tai chi.
The captions, I assume, were submitted by the photographers.
I love the seal, that’s gorgeous!
Talk about a belly laugh! Do look at the other photos. There are so many great ones.
I love them, and can’t spot smiling after watching them! ^_^
Excellent! I was hoping they’d make everybody smile.
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!
He is rather emblematic of the season, isn’t he?
The seal wins my vote. Is this the laughing Buddha is disguise?
I knew there was something familiar about that seal!
I’ve got to see the rest of them (One is cute – but that second one is hilarious!)
Yep, hard not to laugh at #2.
