Photographer Gives Squirrel A Tiny Umbrella To Protect Itself From Rain

ADVERTISEMENT

A squirrel taking shelter under a mini umbrella is the latest addition to London photographer Max Ellis’ portfolio. He’s succeeded posing squirrels with objects before, including pumpkins, but getting one to pose in the rain was difficult. Ellis’ solution? Coating the umbrella in sunflower seeds and peanut butter before hanging it on fishing line.

“I considered building a covered walkway from their tree because I was getting cramp crouching behind the camera,” Ellis told the Daily Mail. “Fortunately this one popped out and hung around exploring for about six minutes. As the rain got heavier, he was able to shelter for a bit but eventually gave up and headed off home.”
