We recently came across his work on Instagram and instantly fell in love with his adorable, funny images. Back in 2015, he won the renowned Comedy Wildlife Photography Award with his image of a running hamster, titled "Rush hour".

1 Just... A Little... Bit... Closer
Possibly a reincarnation of Scrat the saber-tooth squirrel from Ice Age in his latest pursuit of the acorn, and by acorn we actually mean this nut. Also - striking a majestic yoga pose while at it.
2 Summer Feelings..
Lost in meditation this squirrel seems to be making a wish on a flower - "oh, please please please, let my days be filled with nuts and acorns!"
After an intensive session of teaching Squirrel Yoga to the whole forest populace, a proper hydration is a must! Even if it's just a handful of tiny droplets.
4 Ground Squirrel Enjoys The Summer
5 A Handful Of Flowers
Just a friendly passing-by squirrel from a neighboring forest. He seems to be caught on a casual stroll collecting flowers worth of a bouquet.
We all know that acrobatics comes with a certain risk. However, we believe that this time the risk is worth the delicious raspberries he's about to take!
7 "Can I Touch You?"
"Holy acorns! This fluff tail, the fur, and the button black eyes.. truly, an incarnate of perfection! Where have you been my whole life?"
9 "Ohh.. Who Are You?"
This little squirrel seems to be no stranger to the wonders of winter. Though, she built herself a companion, she seems to be contemplating whether or not her frosty friend truly needs a nose...
10 Happy Fox
Suddenly, a wild fox appears who seems to be sharing a personal joke with herself. We aren't entirely sure why the smiley face, but it is very contagious.
