A few weeks ago we shared the finalists of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards for 2016 which showcased a bunch of perfectly timed snaps capturing animals at the goofiest.
The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards winners for 2016 have been announced – have a laugh at animals going full retard below
Now the winners have been announced, whittled down from 2,200 entires in total. The top prizes in the Overall and On the Land categories were handed to Angela Bohlke from the States for her excellent shot of a fox face-planting into the snow at Yellowstone National Park.
“The picture shows a red fox hunting for his morning breakfast, a small rodent, known as a vole,” Bohlke said in a statement. “This photograph is from one of the times he unfortunately, however, hilariously missed. On the third try, he finally succeeded.”
“To me, winning is just a chance to share the beauty of our protected lands with more people,” she added. “I plan to donate any personal profit from sales of the image back to Yellowstone National Park where this image was taken.”
The rest of the awards are also for a good cause, with an initiative also put forward by the The Born Free Foundation, a conservation charity, aimed at getting people to talk about conservation and wildlife. You can read more about that here.
