The Hilarious Winners Of Comedy Wildlife Awards
Professional as well as amateur photographers had entered their best pics in this international photo contest. It is co-sponsored by the Born Free Foundation which ensures care for the wildlife and less fortunate.
This image of a chubby little hamster in a hurry took the top prize at the Awards. Julian Rad's hamster photo titled "Rush Hour," won him a week-long photographic safari in Africa, as well as a new Nikon DSLR camera.
Second place went to William Richardson of the UK for this stag stacked full of foliage.
The bronze was awarded to Oliver Dreike of Tanzania who snapped this gorilla picking its nose.
Other entries showcase the fact that our wildlife brethren are no different from us humans, equally prone to goof-ups, mis-steps and other embarrassing moments. We cannot wait for the next edition!
