The very best nature photography shows us the kings and queens of the jungle stalking majestically through their terrain; the lords and ladies of the forest gliding effortlessly from branch to branch; the fearsome rulers of the ocean lurking in the soundless depths. And the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards is for the other guys. The guys who are just like us. The goofy kangaroo singing in the shower. The penguin shuffling off to work after a late night out. The lion with a bad hair day.
This year’s finalists were selected out of more than 7,000 submissions from all over the planet, and each of these deeply relatable bozos is helping with a good cause: The competition is donating 10 percent of this year’s revenue to Save Wild Orangutans. And here are the finalists in all their glory.
