Hi, my name is Niki Colemont from I’ve been photographing red squirrels for 5 years now. On different locations. I have no formal education and I learned everything through trial and error. Recently, I have been featured by 60-second docs and Bored Panda (previous posts here and here) my life story, and how photographing squirrels brought me peace.
Red squirrels are impressively agile, While jumping, the tail is held horizontally behind the squirrel and, although it does not act as a parachute, it helps improve the squirrels aerodynamically. I wanted to share this post to show you how acrobatic red squirrels really are and to brighten up your days in uncertain times.
