Russian Photographer Captures The Cutest Squirrel Photo Session Ever

Talented Russian nature photographer Vadim Trunov has had close encounters with wildlife before, but this is the first time we’ve seen his beautiful photos of squirrels playing or shooting pictures of each other! The photographer recently published some cute photos he’s captured of adorable squirrels that seem to be building snowmen or playing volleyball with nuts.

The truth is a bit different, however – it’s winter, these cute squirrels are hungry, and they want food! In fact, the ones with the pine cone and the nut are fighting over the winter food, which Trunov left in a clearing so he could photograph the wild animals.

Trunov takes wonderful wildlife photography shots whether it’s winter or summer – check out his macro nature photography as well!

They also made an ice sculpture of the Eiffel Tower but unfortunately the wind knocked it over before the photograph could record it.

Once, near Halloween 2013, I gave my two squirrels a mini pumpkin, the edible kind, and they both started chewing at it at the same time and then just ran off to play and when I checked the pumpkin later it had two big holes and one tiny hole right below and between the two big holes so the effect was like they'd just carved a jack-o-lantern.

Of course not, in fact the snowball is suspect too. I hope there was no Photoshop involved.

Those are cool-as-hell squirrels. The ones around my area are cute and entertaining, but they don't have those firey tufts. Now I know: Russian squirrels in Voronezh are way cooler than northeast American squirrels.
