An adorable squirrel has been captured battling the rain and wind with a tiny umbrella.

Max Ellis, 47, came across a wild squirrel in his garden in Teddington, London, when he decided to try and snap the pics.

Bribing the squirrel with peanut butter, Max finally got the snaps he was after as the squirrel clung onto the tiny umbrella placed in his way.

Max said: “The squirrel was very cautious at first but more enthusiastic when he got a taste for the peanut butter.

“It took me days to get the pictures because it took a lot of patience and bribing.

“I’ve had many strange reactions to my images, some were quite convinced that I glued the squirrels paws to the umbrella which I didn’t”.
