PIC: The funniest wildlife photo of the year has been revealed
Before you go any further, we fully recommend you check out all of the nominations that were in the running for Comedy Wildlife Photographer of the year.
You can check them all out here (our personal favourite has to be the polar bear taking a photo of his own), and then come back here to see which one of them won.
.... All caught up? Fantastic! Then on we go!
The 2018 Comedy Wildlife Photographer of the Year went to Mary McGowan with her fantastic image of a North American squirrel, which you can check out below.
The organisers of the competition made the following statement about the win:
"Mary who wins a ton of prizes including a safari of a lifetime with Alex Walker's Serian and a wonderfully impressive trophy and, of course, the title of Comedy Wildlife Photographer of 2018!
"Remember, we are all about conservation. We want you to take up our banner of wildlife conservation, bang the drum, beat the cymbal and make some noise, we need to spread the word – wildlife, as we know it, is in danger, all over the world and we need to do something to help save it. You can start by going and having a look at what the Born Free Foundation are doing at www.bornfree.org.uk."
