I’ve Been Shooting Wild Squirrels For 4 Years And They Finally Shot Me Back

ADVERTISEMENT

4 years ago I started photographing wild red squirrels. In those early years I captured squirrels behind a camera shooting birds and nature, but this time I wanted to let them capture me.

This year, squirrels started to climb on my camera during shooting and that gave me the idea of letting them do the photo job. In total there are 4 different squirrels in these shots. Some of these photos are made by stacking 2 photos together.

You can also see our wild previous photoshoots here and here.

These squirrels are absolute rascals. They get into trouble so quickly , but, they are a delight to watch.... unless, they are digging up my bulbs in the garden.

The two in my yard are obviously Harvard educated, because in spit of setting traps for them, they know not to get caught, so I can move them out of the area. They go through my garden like a whirlwind. :(

Amazing shots, and I'm sure a LOT of photos and patience to get them! Are these 'squirrel + camera' available as a series?
