Hilarious images capture red squirrel appearing to take photos of birds
This is the hilarious moment a red forest squirrel posed behind the frame of a tripod with both paws placed on the camera, ready to take the perfect shot.
Perched behind the camera lens, the bushy-tailed creature has an expression of intense concentration and appears as though it is taking photographs of a blue tit bird.
The endearing photographs were captured by photographer Vadim Trunov in a forest in the Voronezh region in western Russia after he spent several days waiting for the perfect shot.
The 31-year-old photographer said:’There were many birds, thus increasing the probability of finding a good moment. The squirrel was looking for nuts and was near the camera. I photographed animals and birds when they were in the desired moment and position.
‘I had to wait a long time to photograph interesting points. It takes days.’
