An inquisitive squirrel takes a peek through a camera and appears to be working out the best shot.
The red squirrel, with its body outstretched, looks through the lens as it tries its hand at photography.
The curious animal had just been eating hazelnuts and pine nuts from a miniature table before it noticed the unattended camera.
Photographer Paul Masterton captured the red squirrel peering into his camera near Glenshee, Scotland.
