The squirrels are having fun posing in front of various tiny decorations for Christmas.
These are some of the photos from photographer Geert Weggen, 48, from Bispgarden, Sweden. He used his artistic talent and photographic abilities to create these seasonal pictures.
The festive activities have been recorded in the previous three weeks, with food enticing the squirrels to explore the hannås Skogen forest nearby.
These squirrels are indeed red squirrels, and their diet is seeds and nuts.
“The Christmas activities are located near the forest, and when I saw the squirrels scrambling all over the ornamental lights, I knew I needed to capture them with my camera.
“I love the photo of one squirrel holding a guitar with candles all around it, and the lighting was just perfect. The squirrel was great in this shot, posing with both paws on the instrument while being careful.
“It’s not simple photographing them; I usually have to picture the sort of shot I’m going for.”
“A wrong placement of food can cost me a whole day.
”I can’t predict if one or four squirrels are coming and there are days when no squirrels are insight.
But I’m satisfied with this batch of photographs, and it’s great to share some festive shots.
“I’ve also just completed a Christmas children squirrel book, which I regard as fascinating creatures.”
