Animals can make us laugh, cry, and sometimes be amazed with a sheer sense of wonder.
This is a laughing week, as the 2017 Comedy Wildlife Photography award winners have been announced. Various pictures that capture animals in some of their awkward and inopportune moments will make almost everyone chuckle.
According to The Guardian, images featuring various animals from a highly surprised seal to an unfortunate young owl who gets pushed off his perch by his two siblings will put a smile on your face.
Included amongst the winners is a fox who is being very naughty on a golf course.
You can view all the winning photos here.
