The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards are as awesome as you hoped they'd be

Remember that photo you got of your dog/cat/lizard doing that hilarious thing with your TV/computer/child?

The one that got you all the likes on Facebook and rekindled several forgotten friendships with comments of "Lol!" and "OMG brilliant!"?

Well it's got nothing on these. The shortlist for the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards makes your pitiful attempt at animal humour look like a child's crayon scribble. 

As the competition's title suggests, this is a contest that takes a lighter approach to the po-faced world of professional wildlife photography. But its not just for cheap internet chuckles - the contest also helps promote the Born Free Foundation and its fight for compassionate conservation. Go and check them out after you've had a laugh, right? Good.
