Dog and cat (and, err, horse) videos still grab our attention as much as they did the day Youtube was born. But anyone who’s ever spent a significant amount of time watching the Nature Channel knows the funniest animal moments exist in the wild. 

So it’s fitting that there is now a competition that appreciates the most hysterical shots of animals in their natural habitat. Founded by wildlife photographer Paul Joynson-Hicks, the The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards showcase “the funny side of the majestic creatures we love to photograph and protect.” 

Take a look at the winners below – and get ready for your cheeks to hurt after so much smiling.
