50 Wildlife Photos That Are So Bad, They’re Hilarious (New Pics)

Published 4 years ago

When it comes to wildlife photography, there are times when you manage to capture the perfect photo and then there’s times where you’re just half a second too late. But don’t worry – even if your photo isn’t worthy of a National Geographic cover, it might be the perfect candidate for the “Crap Wildlife Photography” Facebook group.

Both amateur and professional photographers are submitting their unsuccessful wildlife photos to this Facebook group, and they’re so bad, they’re hilarious. From angry squirrels to overly-curious fireflies, check out the funniest submissions to the “Crap Wildlife Photography” Facebook group in the gallery below! And if you want more, see our previous post here.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
