A squirrel leaps athletically from a pond after retrieving a fallen acorn. A group of red squirrels hunt for acorns and nuts which have fallen into the water from overhanging trees.

Having obtained their treasured food, the squirrels leap again onto dry land, wary of nearby predators such as hawks. The photographs were taken in Drunen, in the Netherlands, by nature and travel photographer Marta Demarteau.
