Funny pictures from the wildlife comedy photography contest 2021

The Wildly Popular Wildlife Comedy Photography Contest Has Shared Some Of Its Most Interesting Entries Before It Closes This Year.

The photos taken at the right time are mostly chance, But this does not make us deny the skill and determination of their photographers; That’s why there’s an event called the Comedy Wildlife Photography Contest ( CWPA ).

In these competitions, extraordinary photographers display the best and funniest pictures they have captured of wildlife. These photos show an animal doing something strange, unusual, and funny.

Tom Solam, the founder of the CWPA, explained the difference between this year’s competition and conditions compared to previous years:

this excellent topic makes us happy. ecause the corona pandemic affected travel this year, we thought we might receive fewer participants and entries than in previous years; But we were surprisingly well received; Especially in the “in the air” category, where we received hundreds of brilliant images of birds. Perhaps this is because during the Corona era, we have all spent more time at home, and the lack of travel has made more people notice the wildlife close to their homes, Especially the birds flying outside the windows of our houses.

The deadline for sending photos continues until June 30, But the CWPA has released some of the funniest pictures submitted by photographers. These pictures show that this year’s race will be exciting.

  • Raccoons / Kevin Biscaburn / Wildlife Comedy Photography Contest Photo Title: Life in quarantine
  • Photographer’s name: Kevin Biscaburn

If you stayed indoors with your family during the quarantine and wished to go outside as soon as possible, you should know that these oriental raccoons understand your mood well.

According to the photographer, just when he thought there was no more space in this hollow tree, the mother raccoon appeared and showed him that her family was living in a tight area without observing social distance.

This photo was taken in southwestern Ontario, Canada. After exploring a particular area with many trees, the photographer identified this area as a suitable spot for a family of raccoons. Since raccoons constantly move from one nest to another and often do not stay in a particular nest for more than one night, locating them is not easy. When Biskaborn found this cute family, he immediately planted the camera in a suitable hole at a right angle. When the camera and tripod were ready, the baby raccoons were so curious that they poked their heads out of the tree hole to get a closer look at the subject. take off

This picture was taken in Curaçao, Dutch Caribbean. Boxfish are usually tricky to photograph; Because they have no problem with divers approaching, But if they realize that you want to take their picture, they will always turn their back to you. That’s why I tried to swim half a meter above the fish and not show any interest in him. At the same time, I put the camera in front of my chest and held it down. When the right moment arrived, I turned the camera 90 degrees towards the fish and took the picture. I never expected the beautiful lips of this fish to be so close to the camera.

Tom Solam, the founder of the CWPA, says about the conditions of this year’s competition:

We usually receive around 7,000-8,000 images per tournament, and hope to reach the same number of entries this year. Probably, this year compared to last year, the number of pictures of elephants and hyenas will not be too many.

The remarkable thing about this race is that wildlife is everywhere; That is why we are very passionate about preserving it, and want to maintain it.
