As always, the famous Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards photo competition rewards the funniest animal shots of the year. This competition, which highlights both the beauty and spontaneity of the daily life of these wild animals in their natural environment, is also a great way to have a good laugh! After an exceptional 2020 vintage with no less than 44 photos, we invite you today to discover the 2021 selection.

There is a message of awareness associated with this, and humor is undoubtedly a good place to start. Without further ado, let’s get to the clichés.
