Armed with their cameras and a passion for animals, wildlife photographers strive to capture the beauty and majesty of the natural world. And while beauty and majesty are great, sometimes you just want to see a fox pooping in the hole of a golf course. Now, as Rebecca Hersher reports for NPR, the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards is here to fill that desire. They’ve announced the winners of its 2017 competition, capturing the animal kingdom in all its goofiness.

The project’s mission is simple: to stage a competition that is “light hearted, upbeat, possibly unpretentious and mainly about wildlife doing funny things.” Contest organizers also hope that the winning images of hilarious and adorable animals will inspire people to “talk about the dire need for us all to be conservationists in our own little way.”

All photos were also compliments of the Comedy Wildlife Awards.

These type of photos are difficult to do, as you would have to have all the elements in place: good composition, good lighting, and timing. Congratulations to all the winners above.
