Two kayakers were enjoying the day along with other people, fish, whales, and birds in Avila Beach, California. They were watching humpback whales feeding when one of the whales scared the hell out of them: it almost swallowed them! One of the women filmed the whole experience, and it looks pretty scary. But when you look at it from the side, it’s even scarier.
UK’s Royal Society of Biology has recently published the results of this year’s photography contest and they have left me speechless. The theme of the 2020 contest was “Our Changing World,” and the images show how nature changes and adapts, often due to human impact. While there are some positive examples of human interference with the natural world, the winning image of elephants rummaging for food is absolutely heartbreaking.
The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards competition has never failed to make me laugh with its selection of comical photos of animals. And this year’s gallery is no exception. The contest has announced its 2020 finalists and they caused me to laugh out loud, and I’m sharing them hoping to get you to laugh, too.
I have a few favorite cafes in several cities, and I think I’ve just found another one. But it’s not an ordinary café as no human can get inside, sit down and order a drink. It was made by photographer Kristen Flagg in her own backyard, and its visitors are chipmunks, squirrels, and birds. Kristen doesn’t only serve them fruit, seeds, and nuts, but she also takes photos of her cute little customers. And she has agreed to share some of these adorable photos with DIYP.
If you ask me, animals who steal cameras are always fun to watch. We’ve seen some hilarious encounters of mammals and birds with GoPros, and the funny video we’re about to share with you today took place in the sea. It shows a curious little octopus persistently trying to steal a diver’s GoPro. And it looks like the animal liked it a lot!
I’m sure that most of us agree that each dog has its own personality. If you ask me, I love it when photographers manage to capture those animal personalities in photos. German photographer Elke Vogelsang does it, but she brings out the funny side of her four-legged models. Her dog portraits are adorable, fun, and as goofy as it gets. If they don’t put a smile on your face, I don’t know what will.
The funniest photography competition in the world, and one of my personal favorite ones, is open for entries. The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards has brought us plenty of giggles over the past few years. From now until late May you can be a part of it, and we bring you some previously unseen hilarious photos if you need some inspiration. Or if you just need some laughs.
Alexander Khokhlov and Veronica Ershova, have already shown us what they can do when photographing people as a team. But this time, their main subjects were dogs. The duo’s latest project The Dog Show is all about man’s best friend. Alexander and Veronica have created portraits of dogs showing their different personalities and emotions, and they’ll put a smile on your face even if you’re not much of a dog person. I guarantee!
