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!
