“The love I have for these wonderful wild red squirrels I try to express in my photos.”
This giant heart is for you, my lady.
Dashing through the snow, for my lovely girl.
“The most photos are exactly how I’ve shot them.”
“For the photos with 2 squirrels in it I shot 2 photos of the same scene…”
“…with squirrels standing in different positions…”
“…and stacked them together in Photoshop.”
I’m so charming. Oh, my god. I’m irresistible.
