That’s nuts! – These squirrels have done their own photoshoot.
This photographer had only turned his back for a split second when two squirrels dashed in take some snaps by themselves.
The cheeky grey squirrels gave the lens a good inspection before getting behind the camera to capture some portraits.
Perching on the handle to get a good view of the screen, the one of the creatures even manages to capture the other reading a crystal ball.
The pictures were taken by 62-year-old financial advisor Bob Riach at Hartsholme Country Park near Lincoln.
Bob, from Scunthorpe, said: “I have taken pictures of the squirrels at Hartsholme Country Park before and have found that after spending about an hour with them and feeding them with nuts I can build up some trust with them.
“This time I set off at about 7:30 in the morning to give myself plenty of time to get pictures.
“During the three hours I was there it rained and hailed, but fortunately being in the woods was not too much of a problem.
“It didn’t take me long to build up trust with the squirrels and I literally had them eating out of my hands. I saw about 15 different squirrels during the time I was there.
“Even as I was setting up my spare camera they were climbing on the lens before I was ready.
“My favourite image is one of the squirrels stood on the tripod pointing the camera at the other one.
“I really enjoyed the three hours with them. The squirrels are great characters, and are cheeky and cute.”
