The organizers of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards have announced the 2020 finalists.

On the photos, the animals are depicted in the most incredible and funny poses. This is the main feature of the competition. A fish that appears to smile, a bear gives a friendly wave from afar, and a very grumpy sea turtle are among the finalists. At the same time, despite the entertainment component, the main goal of the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards is to preserve wildlife.

The competition is held jointly with the charity organization Born Free Foundation, and anyone can take part in it.
The name of the winner, who will receive a week-long photo tour of Kenya's Masai Mara Park, will be announced on October 22.

In the meantime, here are a few finalists' entries that might give you a chortle.
