These pictures are ace.
Max Ellis taking pictures of squirrels is something I’ve covered before. Last time they were lifting weights, this time, the squirrel has an umbrella!
To get these awesome shots in the rain, Max had to cover the umbrella in sunflower seeds and peanut butter, then hung it from a fishing line.
I considered building a covered walkway from their tree because I was getting cramp crouching behind the camera. 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.
