Leaping lion cub crowned in Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards

A exceptional minute of feline shame has taken out major honours at this year’s Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards.

Drawing 1000’s of entries from experienced and amateur photographers from about the earth, the competition aims to celebrate the hilarity of our natural wildlife.

US photographer Jennifer Hadley’s shot of a baby lion misjudging what could have been his initial leap (aptly named ‘Not so cat-like reflexes‘) was giggle-inducing plenty of to choose out the overall prize, as properly as the Creatures of Land award.

“This 3-thirty day period-outdated cub and his sibling ended up in a tree. The other lionesses have been in other trees and on the floor. He needed to get down and walked all over the branches searching for the correct location and ultimately just went for it,” Ms Hadley explained.

“It was likely his to start with time in a tree and his descent did not go so nicely. He was just wonderful though following landing on the floor. He got up and ran off with some other cubs.”

Here is a glimpse at the other 2022 profitable photos.
