2020 Comedy Wildlife Photography Award Finalists

2020 has been one rocky year but luckily, in the world of animals, it's never been better! Since the beginning of the pandemic, it was the Earth and animals that have benefited from the lack of us humans destroying the world. 

And with the yearly competition, Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, we're further able to celebrate the magic that is animals, majestic or not. The incredible photographers that have been selected for this year's finalists have really delivered some animal gems! The following photos, captured at the moment, are hysterical and show us all that we're not alone when it comes to looking funny when our photos are taken! 

We were able to talk to Michelle, the head of Comedy Wildlife Photography Award's press office, and asked about the process of narrowing down so many wonderful photographs into the top finalists, she had this to say about the process, "... it is a brutal process. We started with over 7000 images - and whittled them down based on: level of humour, quality of photography, ability to get people's attention. It sounds relatively vague the last point, but we want to get our message of conservation across to as many people as possible, and the images must attract their attention!"

Well, these photographs selected definitely capture our attention! 

The winners will be announced on October 22nd, but the following images are all winners in our eyes! Congrats to all the photographers who made it to the finals and thank you for sharing such imagery with us -- we all could use this fantastic pick-me-up!

Pictures Of Russian Blue Cats And Nothing More

Russian blues are a particularly striking cat breed! With a silky coat of bluish-silver and bright green eyes, you can't help but be enchanted by them.

Oh, also, their personalities are heckin' adorable. They are known to be so incredibly playful, sweet, and cuddly. Russian Blues are known to be affectionate but not overly clingy. According to Hills Pet, "It's said that Russian blues train their owners rather than the owners training them, a legend that's been proven true time and again."

And interestingly enough, the name "Russian Blue" would mean the cat originated from Russia but no one knows for sure. It is believed to be originated from Archangel Isles, in North Russia. 

According to the Cat Fanciers' Association, "the Russian blue breed descended from the cats kept by the Russian Czars. Assuming the Russian blue did migrate from northern Russia, it was likely via ship to England and northern Europe in the mid-1860s."

This breed sure has a royal history! Not that we're surprised. Just look how regal they look:

Sometimes, we don't even need words to express ourselves clearly. Enjoy the following gallery of stunning animal images that don't need any caption.

Beautiful Photos Of Colorful Butterflies On Flowers

Butterflies are a common sight in many gardens, pollinating and feeding on a wide range of flowers.

Those beautiful creatures have an amazing range of color preferences between the various species, but as a general rule, flowers that are white, pink, purple, red, yellow and orange attract the most butterflies. Blue to green flowers are universally the least favorite flower color. Some evidence indicates that butterflies may learn which color flowers tend to produce their favorite types of nectar, using color as a visual cue when hunting for these plants.

We have collected some photos of this wonderful combination between flowers and butterflies.
