Please, for the love of God, take a time to enjoy a laugh and live a little less seriously!

Many images of nature present a gloomy view of the big outdoors. The creatures seem solemn, reflective, and pensive. That is not what you will witness today. These humorous and unguarded wildlife images show that animals can be just as silly as people when they believe no one is looking.

In this collection of wonderful images, we see monkeys going crazy, sharks displaying a softer side, and plenty of squirrels engaging in all sorts of mischief. The following photographers not only have an eye for what makes a good photo, but they also have an understanding of what is humorous, as seen by the fact that each of these images was a finalist in the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards.

However, this image demonstrates that if given the opportunity, one of these tiny little creatures would stick up its dukes even if it’s simply to buy itself some time to make a clean getaway. We don’t typically think of prairie dogs as an animal that can put up a fight against an apex predator.

 

According to photographer Arthur Trevino, he was only able to capture this image after the Bald Eagle utterly failed to catch its intended feast of prairie dogs:

 

The prairie dog sprang in the direction of the Bald Eagle after it failed to catch it, startling it long enough for it to flee to a neighboring burrow. A true David vs Goliath tale!

Roie Galitz, one of the most celebrated contemporary wildlife photographers, took this image, which is just one of his incredible photographs of animals in their natural habitat. Galitz paused in the discussion of his passion for photography to add that his enthusiasm for what he does is the reason his images are so compelling and intimate. He clarified:

 

I adore the outdoors and animals. I have always. I really believe that you should go where your advantages can be used as tools of commerce. Although I’m quite skilled in technical areas, I struggle in interpersonal situations. So I’ll never be as skilled at portraiture as the magnificent masters, but I can really shine in the area of wildlife photography. You want to be in a position where your talent and passion intersect.

The phrase “two to tango”

The world of bears is immensely intriguing. They are both fun-loving tiny weirdos who dance with each other when they believe they are alone and apex predators that roam the forests eating pretty much anything they choose.

 

Valtteri Mulkahainen, a photographer and teacher from Finland, captured a trio of dancing bears and calls the sight “wonderful.”

 

I hid and kept an eye on them to see what they did. Like, little children, the cubs played with one another. It resembled a circle dance as they stood in a circle and started to push and stamp each other. They pushed and shoved each other while standing there for around 30 seconds. They all fell to the ground in a single heap after they started fighting.

Due to their vivid colors and mouths that resemble beaks, parrot fish are common along the Indo-rocky Pacific’s shores and reefs. It’s even more intriguing because they don’t naturally smile like the fish in the picture.

 

Photographer Arthur Telle Thiemann outlined the persistence required to capture this ideal image:

 

The Canary Islands El Hierro parrot fish I noticed this parrot fish among a bunch of them; it had a crooked mouth and appeared to be grinning. I’m not sure if a fishing hook or just a hard object that it tried to bite caused it. I focused on it for several minutes before I was able to capture this frontal photo. Yes, it brightened my day.

Although birds are frequently portrayed as graceful creatures that fly through the air on wings that are lighter than the wind, this photograph demonstrates that being a former dinosaur may occasionally be an embarrassment. It’s quite fortunate that this man was able to capture one of those flawless pictures that we see so infrequently.

 

Nobody intends to capture a photo this funny, but occasionally everything just aligns itself before you press the shutter. Photographer John Spiers mentioned the following when speaking with Spectrum Photo:

 

As I was photographing pigeons in flight, a leaf fell upon the bird’s face.

Japanese macaques are a kind of monkey that reside north of Honshu, Japan’s largest island. This adorable little boy is one of them. Due to their thick coats and modest diet of bark and pine leaves, which they must consume at regular intervals to ensure they can keep their bodies warm in subzero conditions, these macaques are well-adapted to life in cold regions.

 

The other macaques started going to spring in 1963 after a female started doing so. This started a long-standing custom of relaxing in a hot spring during the deepest winter months. Knowing that relaxing in a hot tub is enjoyable whether you’re a human or a primate is quite wonderful.

Even in the animal kingdom, moms are renowned for raising their young, even though the young don’t always want to be raised. This expertly timed image of a smooth-coated otter dragging her young through the water demonstrates how these creatures teach their young to swim; unfortunately, it appears as though she’s ripping the baby’s head off.

 

It can’t be simple to take a picture like this. To catch this mother snatching her child by the scruff of its neck and telling it what for, you’d have to wait for the right opportunity. It’s amazing to watch an animal behave like a human mother and watch over her young.

Taking a mud bath is fun

Is there anything more enjoyable than just having a good time and playing in the mud? with a large elephant? No way. This photo, which was taken in Zimbabwe along the edge of Lake Kariba, shows an elephant having a great time. Even while it might seem disgusting, these animals actually truly enjoy it.

 

Elephants roll around in the mud to cool off and soothe any insect bites they may have. They also do this to protect themselves from the heat. Elephants frequently bathe in groups so they can ensure they clean all of the tight spaces.

That’s going to be remembered.

Woof! Does anyone else currently feel pain? These kinds of golden silk monkeys reside in large groups in China’s hilly forests and frequently sleep in groups inside trees.

 

Photographer Ken Jensen claims that this is an aggressive act rather than a picture of a monkey who is completely wracking himself. Jensen never expected this picture to win the 2021 Comedy Wildlife Photography Award. He said to Newsweek:

 

The news that my entry had won completely staggered me. especially considering that many gorgeous photographs were sent. It is such a wonderful feeling to know that one’s image is making people smile throughout the world and supporting some incredibly good conservation causes. The publicity that my image has garnered over the past several months has been phenomenal.

Geert Weggen, a Dutch-Swedish photographer, is an expert at capturing the ideal image of an animal in the field. He especially excels at capturing the ideal image of a squirrel. Speaking with My Modern Met about his work, he revealed that achieving this kind of shot requires more than just talent and perseverance. He stated:

 

Food. It mostly revolves around that. They would not come if I didn’t have food. Despite the fact that various birds and squirrels come to my house and follow me around. If there was nothing to gain, they wouldn’t do that. We share and benefit from one another.

One of the cutest animals around is the prairie dog. In addition to digging throughout the earth and moving from hole to hole, they frequently engage in adorable but sometimes perplexing “dances.” Actually, with all that shifting and shaking, we have no idea what they’re up to.

 

When prairie dogs are chatting and hopping around, it may appear as though dance is being performed with no one in attendance. The purpose of this small ritual, according to researchers, is to either warn other prairie dogs to stay away from their territory or to indicate that a predator has left the area.

Mudskippers are utterly insane. These amphibious animals may appear to be bottom feeders, but they aren’t forced to swim if they don’t want to. These animals “skip” out of the water and sort of walk across the lagoons and mud flats where they live thanks to their huge pectoral fins.

 

Anywhere in the south-eastern hemisphere, but particularly in the marshes and lagoons of Japan, the Philippines, and the Indo-Pacific, is a great place to take your own super-cool photo of one of these animals. Only be careful where you tread.

The American Bald Eagle is a magnificent and beautiful bird.

 

the author is David Eppley

While this eagle does appear a little odd, photographer David Eppley observes that it was busy working on its nest all day:

 

The same nest will be used by bald eagles for many years, if not decades, with new materials being added both at the start and throughout the nesting season. They are typically very good at snatching branches off of trees while flying. This particular Bald Eagle wasn’t in its greatest shape, possibly worn out from working nonstop all morning on a new nest. Yes, they do occasionally fail. The eagle recovers with just a few sweeping wing strokes and decides to take some time to rest before making another timber run, despite the fact that it may appear painful and very well be.

Monkeys have a talent for acting remarkably human, whether it’s relaxing in a hot tub or making motions that are similar to our own, but now that researchers have discovered that monkeys adore music, there’s no turning back. Since monkeys don’t really respond to human music, researchers created unique “monkey music” for the primates, and it’s a total bop. In a research published in the Royal Society journal Biology Letters, the authors stated:

 

From an evolutionary standpoint, we are seeing that note patterns, dissonance, and timing are critical for expressing affective states in both animals and people. The emotional components of music and animal cries may be extremely similar.

Raccoons can either make you think of adorable tiny city bears or trash pandas who will devour anything to get at some untouched fast food, depending on how you feel about them. In addition to the fact that it’s unusual for humans to observe the little mischief-makers conversing with one another, this photo of them doing so is fascinating since they’re being so nice about it.

 

These whispering raccoons are most likely “chittering,” which is a sound made by young raccoons while they are either looking for their mothers or just chit-chatting. Depending on the time of year, these guys can be discussing everything from food to shelter to grooming.

Although we’re not completely clear about what he’s doing, he obviously loves that tree. Due to their declining population, these monkeys, which are primarily found in Borneo, are a protected species.

 

Jakub Hodan, the photographer who captured this perfectly timed image, acknowledged that he’s not quite sure what’s going on in this picture:

 

This Probosci monkey could be kissing its nose or it could just be scraping the rough bark. The lives of monkeys depend heavily on trees. How dare we pass judgment?

Whether taking a picture of an animal in a studio or on the fly, there is always going to be some kind of gimmick involved. Brad Wilson, an expert in animal portraiture, explains to My Modern Met the challenging nuances of acquiring the ideal shot of an animal:

 

The first significant obstacle is getting access to the animals, which takes a lot of time, preparation, and money to set up properly. Additionally, it is particularly challenging because there is no verbal communication during the shoots—you can’t order a tiger to “sit” and face the camera. The animals essentially do what they want (within reason), so I have to figure out a means to capture the image I’m going for without controlling them. In addition, there is a certain amount of bodily risk because the animals are more wild than domesticated. Although every effort is made to lessen this, it still remains to some degree.
