Digg · Updated:

Comedy is all around us. And for the fifth year in a row, the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards are here to show us examples of that truism through the lens of some of the most talented photographers in the world.

The contest just announced its finalists for 2019, and they are all phenomenal. You can find all of them over at the official website, but in the meantime some of our favorites are below.

We begin with a handful of animals who are oddly human:

Marina Gebert

Thomas Mangelsen

Vlado Pirsa

Kevin Sawford

Anthony N. Petrovich

And now, animals doing dirty, gross, hilarious things:

Alastair Marsh

Sarah Skinner

Peter Haygarth

And, finally, our favorite hyper-specific category: extremely relatable bears.

Marion Vollborn

Valteri Mulkahainen

Eric Fisher
