Mars Petcare Comedy Pet Photo Awards shared its 2020 finalists with us in September. And if you’re still having second thoughts about getting a pet – well, you should read on. The contest has just announced this year’s winners, and it’s a collection of goofy, silly, and plain adorable images of pets.
They say to never work with animals or children and while I agree with the children part of that, I’ve always been quite partial to working with animals in front of my camera. You just have to be careful of the ones with horns, sometimes, as this BBC cameraman discovered while filming some Cameroon sheep.
While it’s something that will make every guy who sees it both cringe and laugh, there’s nothing quite as funny as the reaction from the ladies presenting the show.
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.
I firmly believe that pets can make anyone’s life better. If you’re still having second thoughts on whether or not to get one, Mars Petcare Comedy Pet Photo Awards 2020 is here to help you make this decision. One of the funniest photo contests has just shared its 2020 finalists to remind you why pets are awesome. Or at least they’ll make you giggle and make your day.
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.
Filming underwater can reveal so much about the world hidden there. What’s more, it can even show us more about animals that don’t live under the water surface. The San Diego Zoo decided to share what it looks like when flamingos eat. They simply placed an underwater camera into their pond and revealed what it looks like when these wonderful birds are dining.
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.
Is there such a thing as Uncanny Valley for animals? Because seeing the modern spy cameras, I think there should be. PBS has created a robotic Japanese macaque to film the daily lives of its living counterparts. It can even dive, so it has managed to film the underwater grooming ritual of these adorable animals.
