It’s getting to be that time of year. No, not the wildly inflated Christmas holiday season that consumes everything else, but the end-of-the year round-ups of the year’s events. You know the ones — highlights and lowlights of 2016, most important news events, most memorable plays in sports, the 10 best something-or-others of the year, etc.
Those of you who’ve been around here a few years will recall I’m particularly fond of the photography round-ups. And it seems a lot of photography contests start closing in the latter part of the year as well. (I just mentioned the NatGeo finalists a few days ago.) Now it’s time to revisit one of my favorite contests from last year, the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. Entries have closed but winners have yet to be announced. Here are a few of my favorite finalists:
I can’t help smiling back at the frog. And the monkey with the snowball is adorable. I think my favorite, however, is the facepalming meerkat.
What do you think? (Be sure to look at all the finalists.)
