Shakespearian penguins, winged bull among winners in 2022 Comedy Wildlife Photo AwardsPlay
People wax poetic about the majesty of nature — the vastness, diversity and colors. But, what about the comedy? That's where the annual Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards come in. And this year's winners do not disappoint.
Consider a bemused brown bear with a salmon embedded in its ear; a pair of penguins striking dramatic Shakespearian poses; and the overall winner, a lion cub falling out of a tree in a most un-catlike manner.
While the photos are funny, the skill and competition is anything but. The contest draws more than 5,000 entries from 85 countries and is judged by a diverse group of photographers. Contest co-creator Tom Sullam joins Here & Now's Robin Young to discuss the photos and why they matter.
