Being a judge for the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards would certainly be a tough gig.
This years overall winner went to a 3-month old lion cub falling out a tree which was captured by Jennifer Hadley in the Serengeti, Tanzania. The image fought off competition from over 5000 other entries to take out the top spot for 2022.
In case you were worried, the hapless kitty did manage to right himself and land on all fours like a proper cat and ran off with his siblings, possibly hoping that no one had seen him.
Hadley also won the Affinity Photo 2 People’s Choice Award for her shot of a penguin snubbing it’s mate, titled “Talk to the Fin”
A photo of two gray triggerfish by Arturo Telle Thiemann, smiling happily for the camera won the Underwater Category
Here’s some images from other runner ups.
