Every year I capture an Easter squirrel photo series. Always with new scenes and props. This time the big difference is that there is still 1-meter snow laying in the end of March here in the middle of Sweden. More than five white months and the spring is sleeping still.
It is clear that these wonderful animals are looking forward to the spring with fresh new food and hiding their food in the fresh earth instead of hiding it in the cold snow.
The squirrels look a little bit like Easter bunnies, with their long ears and big feet. Squinnies would be a nice name.
I captured many more photos which can be seen in the video together with squirrel movie scenes.
