  A delighted dormouse is crowned winner of the Comedy Wildlife Awards, with a shocked seal and some frisky bears among the brilliant runners-up 

A hilarious photograph of an apparently delighted dormouse perched atop a flower (top) has won at the 2017 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. The adorable snap, which shows the cute rodent climbing up a yarrow flower in the Italian mountains, won the Creatures of the Land category. The photography competition aims to raise awareness of conservation through comedy - and received more than 3,500 entries from 86 countries. Its winners, judged by the likes of TV presenter Kate Humble and comedian Hugh Dennis, were announced last night. They included shots of a couple of randy bears enjoying a moonlit close encounter on a hill in Romania (bottom right), a couple of mudskippers looking gobsmacked in the mud, and a seal looking shocked (bottom left).

After a few minutes of searching, with amazement and happiness, I found this tiny dormouse
