Nature’s finest moments … or not
The winners of the 2017 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards have been announced and these are just a few of my favorites. Don’t miss the rest of them, and all the finalists, on the CWPA website.
The overall winner was that poor little owl at the top. In a series of four photos, he only managed to make it up on the branch once. Apparently perching is an early skill not easily learned by some birds.
We first met the adorable laughing dormouse back in the spring of 2016 when he (or she) was voted Number One of 201 submissions on Bored Panda. Still tops in my book, it’s perhaps one of the most widely recognized wildlife photos of our time.
“Duck Speed” amazes and amuses me, and I can only wonder whether the photographer waited patiently for the flying duck to cross in front of the jet or if it was just a lucky shot in a series of exposures. Either way, it took the sharp eye of a photographer to capture the moment.
But these are just a few of my favorites. Do visit the Comedy Wildlife website and enjoy all the great, humorous wildlife photography.
