A vida selvagem pode ser bem divertida se você olhar do jeito certo. E foi esse "outro olhar" que vários fotógrafos de todo o mundo quiseram mostrar no Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2016 (Prêmio Comédia de Fotografia da Vida Selvagem, em português). Os cinco vencedores do prêmio deste ano foram anunciados esta semana e, junto com eles, uma coleção de fotos que mais parecem bastidores da vida real.

A foto que recebeu o primeiro lugar foi a da fotógrafa Angela Bohlke, dos Estados Unidos, com a sua foto de uma raposa com a cara na neve, no Yellowstone National Park (foto de capa). Foram analisadas mais de 2,2 mil fotos enviadas de fotógrafos do mundo todo para o prêmio. Foram cinco vencedores para cinco categorias. Veja abaixo.
Os organizadores do concurso lembram que o objetivo deles é maior do que apenas trazer imagens engraçadas ao público: a competição é sobre conservação. Em parceria com a Born Free Foundation, eles querem ajudar a salvar vidas, acabar com o sofrimento e proteger espécies que vivem no mundo selvagem.
As fotos vencedoras do concurso – patrocinado em parte pela Nikon e pela Kenya Airways – serão anunciadas no mês que vem em uma conferência em Londres. Os ganhadores vão levar para casa um pequeno troféu de metal, além de uma viagem de uma semana para um safári no Quênia.
Dá uma olhada na galeria super divertida dos vencedores. Tem corujíneas, zebríneas e até ursíneos! Dá até pra criar uma legenda para cada uma, né? Fica o desafio. :D
