Not all pics of nature are meant to go on the cover. And that’s totally fine. All the not-so-fortunate snaps of wildlife have a safe place to go where their author’s lack of skills will be much appreciated.

We’re talking about the widely popular Facebook group called Crap Wildlife Photography where 399.7K members share iconic images in their own very crappy way.

From very out-of-focus photos to the worst timing possible, these awesome photos have surely hit the bottom of the barrel where photography standards used to be. Enjoy the hilarity with the newest batch of crappy goodness from Crap Wildlife Photography, and be sure to check out part 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Previously, Bored Panda reached out to the moderator team of the Crap Wildlife Photography Facebook group and found out more about their widely popular online community.

The representative of the group told us that following Bored Panda’s June article on their group, the community was joined by 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 explained.

Meanwhile, the founder Tristan Kennedy said that he created Crap Wildlife Photography after someone from another group, Crap Bird Photography, asked if there was a separate group dedicated to all kinds of wildlife. It sparked an idea in Tristan to create a whole new Facebook group since nothing similar existed at the time.

Over the past few years, the group was steadily growing, but the recent surge in new numbers was evoked by Bored Panda featuring a selection of the community’s submissions.

“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.” In January, a whopping 300,000 new members joined and Crap Wildlife Photography became somewhat of a household name for poor photos featuring nature and/or animals.

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 explained.

This Was The Last Photo I Took Before I Was Chased Across A Hilly Field, Screaming And Running As Fast As My Legs Could Carry Me

This Was The Last Photo I Took Before I Was Chased Across A Hilly Field, Screaming And Running As Fast As My Legs Could Carry Me

All I had wanted was a closer hawk photo. I did not see this beast in the grass. My husband was in the car on the side of the road, and he responded to my screams by rolling the windows up as I barreled towards him in superhuman flight whilst the badger snarled and gained on me. He thought it was bees or hornets (and left me for dead which I shan’t forget), but no. It was a very large and very angry member of the Mustelid family.
