A seal that appears to be laughing, a singing baboon, and a very angry starling.
These are some of the images of the 42 finalists of the Comedy Wildlife Photograhy Awards 2021, which awards the funniest images of animals captured by photographers from around the world.
The awards were founded by Paul Joynson-Hicks y Tom Sulla, both professional photographers and passionate conservationists.
