A PENGUIN flips his friend – as thousands compete for a top comedy photo gong.
The winning image, taken in the Falkland Islands, shows two gentoo penguins hanging around before one snubs its mate with a fin.
The hilarious snap, taken by American photographer Jennifer Hadley, won a public vote to be named the funniest animal snap of 2022.
Other top photos include a hungry hippo ready to feast on a heron and a one-eyed owl peering out of a pipeline.
Approximately 5,000 comedy snapshots competed for the Comedy Wildlife Photographer of the Year award.
Hadley also won the Supreme Jury Award for her capture of a lion cub, showing not-so-feline reflexes, as it plowed headfirst into a tree.
