Funny wildlife photographs are extremely rare to come by. Hence, the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards are all about honouring exceptional field photography that also happens to be hilarious -- planned or not. 

The contest, was founded by photographer Paul Joynson-Hicks, who is passionate about conversation, and is adamant that no animals be harmed during the photo shoot.
