A seal that appears to be giggling, a baboon that looks like it’s singing and a very angry starling – this year’s finalists show animals in comedy moments snapped by photographers from around the world.

The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards were founded by Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam, both professional photographers and passionate conservationists.

In addition to providing some light-hearted relief, the competition aims to highlight the important message of wildlife conservation in an engaging and positive way, working with competition partner Save Wild Orangutans.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 22 October.

In the meantime, here are a few finalists’ entries that might make you smile.
