Animals

This squirrel got the shock of his life after catching his reflection in crystal clear waters.

Perfectly framed, the squirrel could be stood in front of a mirror as he takes a long drink on the warm spring day in Overijssel, Netherlands, last month.

Dick Van Duijn, 33, a fish shop owner from the area managed to take the nifty shot.

Dick said: “I took this picture which shows a drinking squirrel spotting his reflection from the side.

“I was hoping to capture a drinking squirrel from the front on a very early and warm day in February.

“And I was lucky as the squirrel chose to drink in the right place – I felt very happy I got the shot.”
