Photo by British fan Ken Jensen, winner of the contest with 7,000 nominees, according to the report of the Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards released on Wednesday.

Jensen filmed on a bridge over the Xun River in Yunnan, southwest China in 2016, capturing the moment when the male monkey was sitting on one of the cables supporting the bridge.

“I was very pleased to learn that my work was a success, especially when so many wonderful photos were submitted,” Jensen said in the statement.

“The publicity I’ve received for my film in recent months has been incredible. It’s a very good feeling to know that your film makes people around the world laugh, as well as to support some worthy security reasons. Pain.”

This year the competition will donate 10% of its total net income to Save Wild Orangutans, which works to protect wild orangutans in Kunung Palung National Park in Borneo.
