Looking at pictures of animals is one of the top reasons we are eternally grateful for the internet (after online shopping and makeup tutorials). Case in point: the annual Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards. The contest aims to raise awareness about conservation by recognizing images that are “lighthearted, upbeat, possibly unpretentious and mainly about wildlife doing funny things.” You know, like three penguins on their way to Sunday mass. Here, nine of the funniest snaps from the Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards.
