Animals are natural comedians, and the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2016 proved that yet again.
This year's contest featured over 2,200 entries from around the world, combining sharp photography with even sharper comic timing. The competition aims to raise awareness about wildlife conservation. The awards ceremony took place November 9 in London, with five category winners, one overall winner, and 10 additional photographers who were highly commended. Here are some of the winners, fur and feathers flying.
