These Wildlife Photos Are So Bad, They’re Hilarious (40 New Pics)

Published 4 years ago

Let’s face it – not all of us are meant to become wildlife photographers. But even though your pictures probably won’t end up on the cover of National Geographic, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try your best. After all, even if you don’t succeed and your photos turn out not that great, there’s a Facebook group that will gladly accept you with open arms.

The Facebook group in question is called Crap Wildlife Photography, and, as the name suggests, it’s dedicated to the most hilariously bad photos of animals. And with hundreds of new photos being submitted every day, this group is a gift that keeps on giving. Check out some of the funniest terrible wildlife photos in the gallery below, and if you want more, see our previous posts here and 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?
