“Why did the camera stop dreaming about a career in photography? He couldn’t remain focused.

What did the woman think about her friend who was a photographer? She wished someone would shutter up.

Why did a man always rave about how great his digital camera was? He couldn’t think of any negatives.”

From the Kidadl Team

This week, guest host John of John’s Space has challenged us to post images of humor. It’s not that I don’t have a sense of humor–I do but it’s mostly sarcastic. So do I usually take humorous photos? No, but I do find some situations funny, especially at the Sacramento Zoo. If you go to a zoo enough, you’ll find the animals either look funny or are in funny situations. The following are examples.

Are these flamingos fighting, kissing, or what?

And, what message is this snow leopard sending? Is he smiling?

I’ve never had a lion stick his tongue at me before!

Watch out this orangutan is getting ready to kiss someone!

The okapi have beautiful markings on their rear ends, but maybe this one didn’t like my taking a picture of it!

This zebra is just taking care of an itch, maybe!

I’ll end with the giraffes. They have such expressive faces.

Thank you John for helping us find some smiles in today’s tense world. As you answer this challenge, remember to link to his post and tag Lens-Artists. And thank you everyone for joining in on last week’s colorful challenge. I enjoyed seeing and reading all your responses. Next week Tina will lead our challenge. Be sure to stay tuned.

    1. Thanks Sarah! I’m glad you liked the jokes and the photos. I didn’t think my photos were that funny so I added the jokes. Glad you liked the orangutan. They are the zoo comedians.


  1. OMG … the Orangutan is so ugly that he’s funny.
    You’ve captured the animals but also their personality.
    I think the Opaki turned just in time. It looks like he’s amused.
    I smiled all through your post. Great choices for the challenge.
    I think John has opeended a new photo soor for me. I’ll be on
    the lookout for funny things now.

  2. These pictures are brilliant. The snow leopard’s expression reminded me of the Queen/Witch in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. An about to bite you, but please come in smile.
