Today, we’re going to open a blank page in whatever it is that we knew about photography. Focus? Throw it out. Composition? Never heard of it. Light? Out the window. Timing? Into the bin.
Now, let’s adapt these principles to wildlife photography and here we have it– the internet’s beloved corner on Facebook where people share their failed attempts at shooting animals in nature. “Crap Wildlife Photography” is a community where every failed photograph is celebrated, rather than criticized, so the result is super friendly members (451.3K of them and still growing!) and hilariously entertaining content.
Below we wrapped up a new batch of the crappiest wildlife images for you to enjoy, and after you’re done, be sure to check out our previous features with more spectacular disasters caught on camera here, here, and here.

Wildlife photography is a genre of photography that covers animals and their habitats. It can be challenging to capture the perfect photo of an animal in the wild, but the results can be stunning. Many amateurs have felt tempted to do so, but not all of them succeed.
However, the Crap Wildlife Photography Facebook group is not criticizing the failed attempts, but on the contrary, celebrating them for how entertaining they are. The group’s description states: “This group is for all those photos that you took that didn’t turn out quite right. Maybe you chopped off that pigeon’s head, or maybe that lemur ran up the tree and you only caught its tail.”
Today, the Crap Wildlife Photography community is home to a whopping 451.2K members and it seems nowhere near stopping.
