Crap Wildlife Photography Is So Crappy It’s Actually Amazing (50 Pics)

Crap Wildlife Photography is a Facebook group dedicated to sharing all the best crappy wildlife photos you can imagine.

I usually think of wildlife photography as beautiful frame-worthy photos but for every perfect photo, there are tons of crappy ones and many of them are hilarious. I’m just glad they’re proud to share their crap wildlife photography fails with the world in this Facebook group.
