Can you ever get enough of photos of cute animals? I know, me neither. Belgium-based wildlife photographer Niki Colemont has shared with us a collection of squirrel photos that will make you smile. If you’ve had a rough day (or even if you didn’t), these cute jumping squirrels Niki photographed will make it better.
When they’re orphaned, baby squirrels have a very slim chance of surviving on their own. But zoologist and wildlife photographer Dani Connor helped four red squirrel babies beat the odds. She shared her and their incredible story in this equally incredible video. This NatGeo-worthy piece is not only a treat for the eyes but also the soul.
Of course, with the number of competitors, events and photographers there, it’s not really a surprise. Also, with the amount of gear that will likely be damaged or stolen, they’ll want to keep their pro users happen.
Small animals are aware of humans and behave differently (or disappear entirely) when humans are present. This is why nature photographers often leave their camera with a remote (or simply rolling) to capture the natural behavior of those animals. And this is exactly what youtuber delicious fishes did when leaving some sunflower seeds and peanuts along with a rolling GoPro camera (all set up on a cute little stone table).
After being done with the food, the little squirrel seems to be feeling alone in the world and turns to the gopro to fulfill his emotional (and sexual) needs. Looks like the photographer did not appreciate the act: “Caught this perverted little buggar loving up my GoPro. Filthy little beast!
