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.
It was last fall that Dick van Duijn and a friend headed out to the Brabant forests in the Netherlands. The aim was to shoot squirrels. They took shelter in a hide where they waited for the squirrels to show up. It actually took them a couple of days to get everything perfect with the squirrels sharp against the right backdrop of autumn colors.
Ashly Deskins is back with new furry photos! Ashly and her squirrel friends took over social media this winter with her photographs featuring the adorable furry crew. She captured the squirrels interacting with various human-centric scenes such as watching the Superbowl and voting.
Deskins painstakingly created the tiny set-ups, curated the squirrel interactions and patiently waited for the perfect moment to capture the squirrels on set. With all the viral buzz going a calendar of images was created with portions of the proceeds going to a local wildlife rescue group.
Geert Weggen, a Swedish photographer and carpenter, built an outdoor studio near his kitchen window. Using a bit of food to lure the squirrels, the studio allows him to capture these cute photos from the comfort of his own home.
Thanks to the various props and sets he created, Geert’s squirrels can be seen whispering to mushrooms, putting on the kettle and getting some work done in the garden.
