Photographer Almost Makes A Living Taking Photos Of Squirrels In His Backyard

Posted on Other Stuff 39

Squirrels are the fluffiest of nature’s creations. And taking their pictures is Geert Weggen’s great passion. The squirrels seem to be having a good time, too, exploring their environment and doing unsquirrely things such as flying in an umbrella or cutting a log. These brown little critters are a perfect alternative for a photographer who finds himself suddenly lacking cats!

“Some years ago I started to take photos from my kitchen window of mostly wild red squirrels, and do that still,” Geert Weggen wrote on Bored Panda. “Normally, I get bored after doing something for a few years, but not with this. I still watch these beautiful animals almost every day and make photos.”Weggen says that his pictures are all real – Photoshop is used only to remove wires and food.
