The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards unveiled its 2017 winners this week. The pictures capture funny moments in the animal kingdom.
They include a young polar bear hitching a ride, a group of penguins appearing as though they're headed to church, a happy sea otter, and a very surprised seal. Tibor Kercz's photo of an owl dangling off a tree branch was the overall winner.
