A squirrel poses proudly with a perfectly-formed snowball while another makes sure to capture the moment...by taking a photo. The pair of red squirrels were happy to play model and photographer - before the one behind the camera got fed up and wanted a turn at posing.
The playful exchange is picture perfect, with the snow falling lightly as the squirrels play around with their new toys. Photographer Vadim Trunov, 30, captured the courting pair in the woods in Voronezh, Russia, where he lives. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
