The 2021 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards finalists range from a monkey with “blue balls” to gossiping raccoons.

Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam founded the Comedy Wildlife Photographic Awards in 2015 as a global photography competition. It was founded to use positive and happy visuals to promote the conservation of wildlife and their environments.

This year is no different.

A monkey with “blue balls,” chatting raccoons, a melancholy bird, a smiling snake, and many other creatures are among the winners and finalists of the 2021 competition, which were recently unveiled.
