The winners of the 2017 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards have been announced, an annual competition that gives a hilarious insight into the natural world. Chosen from five categories: In the Air, On the Land, Under the Sea, the Portfolio Category, and one Overall Winner. The overall winner was awarded to a series of four photos showing an owl losing its footing and falling off a branch, taken by Tibor Kercz.

The “In The Air” prize went to John Threlfall, who snapped an image of four birds in the sky with one appearing to pass wind. The “On The Land” prize went to a happy-looking field mouse on a flower, snapped by Andrea Zampatti. The “Under The Sea” category went to Troy Mayne and his picture of a fish being slapped by the fin of a grumpy turtle. A number of other images were highly commended, including three penguins seemingly on their way to Church and a young polar bear clinging onto the behind of another.
