Welcome to the wonderfully weird world of bad wildlife photos, brought to you by the friendly and (sometimes) camera-savvy people from the Crap Wildlife Photography Facebook group. In case you haven’t heard about these up-and-comers, they’re dedicated exclusively to (yup—you guessed it!) crappy wildlife photos.

We’ve collected some of the best new photos from the group to boost your mood and give you a good chuckle, so scroll down, upvote your fave ones, and post your own bad photos of wild animals in the comments below. You can check out Bored Panda’s previous articles about the fantastic Crap Wildlife Photography group right here: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.

Scroll down for Bored Panda's interview with the Crap Wildlife Photography moderator team. Founded back in 2015, the group went absolutely viral in January 2020 and now boasts over 387k members. And the amount of content their members submit each day is absolutely staggering!

A member of the Crap Wildlife Photography mod team told Bored Panda that they always get loads of people posting photos of squirrels, deer, cardinals, and raccoons every single day. "And we have ‘Spooderday’ thread dedicated to spiders every Saturday," they said. So Saturdays are great for anyone who's a spider-lover (but should be avoided by anyone who's got a phobia of the little critters).

According to the representative of the Crap Wildlife Photography team, in the month following Bored Panda's last article about the community in June, the group had grown by around 18k new members. "Actual join requests were around 26k, but the other 8k people didn’t answer the short joining questionnaire so didn’t become members at that time," they said.

The founder of the group, Tristan Kennedy, previously told Bored Panda all about the online community. Tristan told us that he created the group after somebody on another group called Crap Bird Photography asked if there was a page for all wildlife. “There wasn't one that I could find so I created it."

Tristan pointed out that growth had always been slow but steady over the past few years. However, this January, there was a massive uptick in the number of followers, and Tristan had to add the first bunch of new admins to help manage the group.

“Numbers increased from about 15,000 in January to about 45,000 at the start of April. The first Bored Panda article triggered a large spike in numbers—our group numbers spiked from about 45,000 to 100,000 in a few days. Overall, 300,000 have joined since January."

Tristan also told us all about the appeal of crappy wildlife photos: people love ‘em because nearly everyone has taken bad photos. “The 'good' photo groups aren't interested in bad photography, of course, so it gives people somewhere to share their lesser quality photos and have a laugh at themselves,” he said.

The amount of content the group’s admins have to moderate is massive. They get more than 1,000 submissions each day. But far from all of them make it to the page. Some photos might not make the cut because they don’t adhere to the rules of the group while others might not get featured because they’re too similar.

"We get a lot of very similar photos (deer and squirrels seem to be the most common), we try to keep the page interesting by posting a mixture of different kinds of wildlife. We try to make the group as inclusive and light-hearted as possible, somewhere to have a laugh and forget about reality, so to speak."
