WINNER Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards

This delightful photo of a hamster by Austrian photographer Julian Rad was recently selected and announced as this year’s winner of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, which honors hilarious animal pictures captured by wildlife photographers around the world.

“The number and quality of the entries was fantastic,” says judge and British comedian Hugh Dennis. “The finalists should be very proud of themselves, as should the animals they photographed, simply for looking so funny. Sadly there is no way of telling them.”

Rad was awarded a trophy, a 7-day safari through southern Tanzania in East Africa, and a Nikon D750 DSLR with a 24-85mm lens.

The silver prize runner up this year was photographer William Richardson of the UK, who captured this shot:

Anyone asks you havent seen me!

Photographer Oliver Dreike of Tanzania took 3rd place with this one of a gorilla picking its nose:
