A Photographer Dedicates His Life to Capturing Squirrels and Becomes Their Best Friend

4 years ago

A photographer from both Sweden and the Netherlands specializes in taking photos of nature and he does it perfectly — his numerous awards confirm it! For the last several years, he has focused on red squirrels and even managed to befriend them. Though it might seem that some of his pics were Photoshopped, in fact, they were not. Geert Weggen, who has more than 60,000 followers on his Instagram page, creates funny, sweet and even whimsical photos with the help of his inquisitive squirrel friends.

We at Bright Side applaud Geert for his creativity and perseverance and are eager to show you some of the photographer’s work to make your day a bit more squirrel-ish.
