This year’s “Comedy Wildlife Photography Award” has been awarded the photographer Julian Rad, who won with the photo as seen above. A wild hamster running, with its cheeks filled with food and an expression of quiet determination, it almost appears to float in mid-air.

The second and third prizes went to Liam Richardson and Oliver Dreike for their photos of the perfectly camouflaged stag in Richmond U.K and a gorilla as seen in below.

Check some of the other photos that didn’t quite make to the top three, but the perfectly timed photo of a laughing seal it a true gem.
