05 Jun Friday funny: We’re going NUTS!

Team DS has been shivering through frosty mornings recently, but some of us have wintered in Bulgaria, Canada and the UK. We know a Sydney winter is mild in comparison.

These photos by Vadim Trunov show the magical side of a wintery landscape. The Russian photographer got pictures of squirrels as they played in the snow; apparently building snowmen and throwing snowballs.

Trunov has also captured a squirrel fight. He explained that he left a pinecone, which is a good source of energy and a tasty snack, on the ground. He waited till the pinecone attracted a squirrel. A challenger soon arrived and a fight followed – admittedly it’s a very cute fight.

See more squirrels here. For more of Trunov’s work, check out his macro photographs.
