2021 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards

A few years ago, while looking through my wildlife photos, I came across several that made me laugh out loud: an eagle looking at me through its backlegs or a warthog’s bottom Kaufen Alfaprost (Hytrin) Online ohne rezept , you know the kind of thing.  In a light-bulb moment, it occurred to me that humour might just be the way to attract media attention to the fate of our natural world and in so doing engage people to take action.  Thus, was born the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards

#1 “Sweet-Lips Are For Kissing” By Philipp Stahr

"This picture was taken at Curaçao, Dutch Caribbean.  Usually box fishes are difficult to take pictures of, since they do not have a problem of a diver coming close, but if you show interest, they always turn the back and not the face to you. That's why I tried to swim 0.5m above the fish and showing no interest at all to him. The same time I had my camera not in front of me, but below at my chest pointing to the bottom. When the right moment had come, I turned the camera 90 degrees to the front and just point and shoot, hoping to have the fish in focus. Never expected to have its beautiful lips that close!"

#6 “Yay – It’s Friday!” By Lucy Beveridge

"A young springbok, all ears and spindly legs, caught in midair while pronking as the sun started to rise over the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. There's not much information on why the Springbok pronk but some theories suggest it is a way of showing fitness and strength to ward off predators and attract mates. It has also been said that this small, dainty and largely unappreciated antelope also pronks out of excitement, jumping for joy!"
