In a world full of uncertainty, you could probably do with some cheering up right now. While many of us are still stuck inside—or at least going out less—the animal kingdom is still thriving. The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards recently revealed some of the best entries so far for the 2020 contest, and the results are sure to bring a smile to your face.

Now in its 6th year, the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards was co-founded by Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam—two British photographers with a passion for animals. By partnering with The Born Free foundation, the pair hopes to promote wildlife conservation through humorous and lighthearted imagery. Thousands of entries come from all over the world from photographers who managed to capture animals during their most funny moments. This year, stand-out pictures include a confused seal, laughing hippos, and shocked lion cubs.

“The planet has had a bit of a breather recently, because most of us have been in lockdown,” the organizers of the contest say in a statement. “As a result, we have seen wildlife return and thrive in our rivers, oceans, lands, and skies. It is more important than ever before that we learn from this and make sure we do our best to conserve and look after this amazing planet of ours before it is too late.”

Check out some of the best entries so far below, and if you’re feeling inspired to enter the competition, you still have plenty of time—the contest runs until June 30, 2020.
