The winner of the Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards (CWPA) 2022 has been awarded to Texas-based photographer Jennifer Hadley for her image Not so cat-like reflexes. Taken in the Serengeti in Tanzania, Jennifer just happened to be in the right place at the right time when a young lion cub made an ungraceful descent from a tree. Cats falling from trees is unusual, but luckily, Jennifer her had a camera at the ready to capture the moment. 

Jennifer's prize for winning will take her back on safari for a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Masai Mara, Kenya and she will also receive a unique handmade trophy from the Wonder Workshop in Tanzania, as well as a Think Tank camera bag. Reflecting on coming first, Jennifer said:
