Sweden-based photographer Johnny Kääpä has spent the last few years capturing pictures of wild squirrels in their natural habitat. Offering us a glimpse into their world, and sharing a multi-faceted view of these cute tree-climbing rodents.
At first, thought, sitting around waiting for squirrels may sound boring, his photos prove otherwise. His incredible snaps manage to portray these animals experiencing and displaying a wide range of human-like emotions.
In Johnny Kääpä Words About This Series:
“January 21st is squirrel appreciation day and as a photographer, I’ve really come to appreciate the little critters. I find it quite fascinating that it is still possible to come up with new and unique picture ideas after taking hundreds of thousands already.
On my Instagram account, I post a squirrel a day and try to come up with an uplifting title, mostly just a quote from a song, but occasionally I come up with a funny title and when I do, I’m prouder of that than any of the pics.
One of them titled Super Hero is part of a popular meme well famous in the squirrel community, anyway.
I hope these pictures make you smile.”
