We all know, seeing animals posing for the camera in ‘unnatural’ circumstances is a recipe for both an adorable, and viral, Instagram feed.
However, the work of Geert Weggen, a Swedish/Dutch nature photographer is a little more complex than that.
Weggen is a world-renowned, award-winning wildlife photographer, working mainly with wild squirrels and birds.
His work often captures the eyes of animal lovers around the world due to its whimsical nature.
Case in point: he has captured a squirrel wedding.
Don’t tell me it’s staged.
The photos make for delightful viewing and are well worth five minutes of your time.
Check out Weggen’s website for more of his work and to see some videos of him in action with the squirrels.
