Those of you who enjoy travels into nature may sometimes take pictures of the wildlife you come across. Birds, bears, bugs, you name it. Even if you’re an excellent photographer, sometimes things, well, happen. I mean, wild animals generally don’t pose and sometimes you just may not be having the best day with your camera. So you may get photos like these…
You want a photo of the seahorse but get a great shot of the fish instead
Your terrific pic of the mountains winds up with a visitor in it
The bird flew too fast for you to get its whole body into the shot
Or you wind up with a pic that’s totally meme-worthy
If you’ve ever taken one of “those” kinds of photos, or just like seeing the comments people make about them, have I got a website for you!
Crap Wildlife Photography has been on Facebook since 2015 and its goal is to showcase, “all those photos that you took that didn’t turn out quite right. Maybe you chopped off that pigeons head, or maybe that lemur ran up the tree and you only caught its tail.” It’s for the photos that you usually delete. But sometimes those “deletable” shots become a comedy goldmine, and that’s where Crap Wildlife Photography comes in.
Their group rules are pretty basic:
- No photos of people, pets, livestock, zoo/aquarium animals, dead animals or violence
- No nastiness, no religious or political discussion
- Photos must be crappy, original and yours
- No SPAM. No advertising
- This rule was left intentionally blank
- This is no rule #6
- We close on Sundays to catch up
- Admin decisions are final and not personal
As you can see, they don’t take themselves super seriously. But they do have some rules, suggestions and a sort of mini-FAQ, as seen here.
But really, if you want to skip all of that and just get some giggles, smiles and occasional guffaws, just request to join their group and start scrolling. I fell into the rabbit hole and I bet you will, too.
