The internet is full funny cat pictures, but that doesn’t mean they’re nature’s only comedians.  The first annual Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards has the proof.  Founded by wildlife photographer Paul Joynson-Hicks, winners must combine technical skill with funny content and caption.  Below are the winners of 2015 and highlights from this years entries.
