This year again, the Comedy Wildlife Awards 2017 rewards the most funny and twisted pictures of animal photography!
Despite the humorous approach, these awards aren't just about the amusement. Photographers Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam founded them to spotlight wildlife conservation efforts as well.
