Crap Wildlife Photography needs no introduction. The internet's powerhouse founded five years ago as a Facebook group has gone from a couple of thousand members to boasting a solid 411.3K fanbase. It all started when the group went totally viral in January 2020 after being featured on Bored Panda.

Today, it’s one of the most exciting communities on social media which has people sharing weirdly wonderful and impossibly crappy photographs of wildlife. No perfect shots, no well-thought compositions, no good timing: crap photography celebrates the exact opposite.

So get your popcorn ready to scroll through the freshest batch of wildlife photos with deliberately zero quality standards. And after you’re done, make sure to check out our previous posts with the same excellence in crappiness here, here, and here.

The internet is full of many unsuccessful wildlife pictures surfing around, but when the Crap Wildlife Photography Facebook group became the internet's powerhouse for this sort of content, they became cool and edgy—something they’d never been before.

The group’s success has to do with the fact that it’s one of the very few online communities that celebrate all the very bad efforts in photography. “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,” Tristan Kennedy, the creator of the group, told us some time ago.

But what exactly makes it so difficult to capture that pic-perfect shot when it comes to wildlife? Some time ago, we talked to Marina Cano, an award-winning wildlife photographer and Canon ambassador whose work has been on the covers of National Geographic, and in 2015, she was a finalist of the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest.

Marina said that the difficult part “lies in how unpredictable the animals can be, but that’s also the most exciting thing about capturing these images.” This unexpectedness and jumpiness that wild animals have is also what makes the bad photographs so fun and relatable. We all have one in our camera roll and we’re often too embarrassed to share.

According to Marina, the most important thing to know before taking a camera is that “whatever happens in the day you will come back home happy to be in the wild.” On top of that, you need to be passionate, because in this case, “you won’t blame anything and just enjoy it.”

But when it comes to poorly executed photographs, people often blame wobbly cameras, bad weather, or not enough light. Unless you are submitting the picture to Crap Wildlife Photography, this is definitely not something you want in your images.

The photos shared on Crap Wildlife Photography are not to be taken seriously by any cost. People here are celebrating the sheer level of absurdity and lousiness, zero photography standards, and the worst timing ever. After all, we all are desperate for a good laugh these days.

On The Way To Work Today I Looked At My Dashboard With My Toy Dinosaurs On It, And I Thought, I Don't Remember Buying A Lizard

On The Way To Work Today I Looked At My Dashboard With My Toy Dinosaurs On It, And I Thought, I Don't Remember Buying A Lizard

I HAVE A LIZARD IN MY CAR! When I got to work it was over by the passenger side door. I thought great, I'll just catch it and let it go. So I did catch it, but as I was walking to put the little guy in a bush it wiggled free and ran up the inside of my long sleeve shirt! Great, I have a lizard on me. I took off my shirt, it wasn't in the shirt and I tried to find it on my tee shirt. I couldn't find it so I put my shirt back on. Then I felt it on my shoulder, I took the shirt back off and it ran to the front of my tee shirt. I caught it and let it go....
