  The annual Comedy
  Wildlife Photography Awards compile the most hilariously
  candid photos of animals in the wild, from dramatic facial
  expressions to perfectly timed coincidences.

  But the contest is about more than just silly photos. Founders
  Tom Sullam and Paul Joynson-Hicks started the competition to
  raise awareness about wildlife conservation. They hope the
  pictures encourage people to shop responsibly, be mindful of
  their water use, and speak out about environmental
  issues - in addition to making people laugh.

  This year's winners were chosen from a pool of 4,000 entries from
  68 different countries and whittled down to 
  40 finalists. From there, a panel of judges determined the
  most hysterical winning photos.

  Here are the 19 funniest photos of animals taken this year.
