It's off to school for you: The Comedy Wildlife Awards finalists 2021
Take a look through some hilarious images courtesy of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2021.
The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2021 has announced the finalists for this year's awards, and has opened the voting for you to pick your favourites.
Now in its seventh year, the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards showcases the best unintentionally funny animal images from around the world, from a laughing vine snake from India, to a bird that really doesn't want its picture to be taken.
Voting is also open for members of the public to choose the animal snap that made them laugh the loudest in the Affinity Photo People’s Choice Award. The public can cast their vote at comedywildlifephoto.com until 10 October 2021.
We bring you some of our favourites from the final selection, which are sure to bring a smile to your face.
