The Funniest Captures - Wildlife Comedy Awards 2019

Grab life by the .....

I’m a little late to the party, but due to the uncertain times, I felt that we all need some distraction, something to smile about. Whether you are starting out or a seasons profession, I believe it’s important to stop and observe natures candid moments and have fun when doing it.

Wildlife photography can sometimes be a little stiff and take itself far too seriously, this is where the Comedy Wildlife Photography awards set a new perspective, and direction when considering the issue’s that the planet is facing.

I love the sublet way in which they are tackling awareness which I welcome fondly.
