Here is a tiny squirrel with a tiny umbrella

This is maybe the cutest thing ever

As winter approaches, and the days seem fill with unending rain and gloom, remember this photo of a tiny squirrel with a tiny umbrella.

The shot was captured by London photographer Max Ellis who has made a name for himself capturing images of squirrels holding objects.

To capture the shot he bribed the squirrel by coating the umbrella’s handle in sunflower seeds and peanut butter. He then hung it on fishing line.

And then, he waited.

“I considered building a covered walkway from their tree because I was getting cramp crouching behind the camera,” Ellis told the Daily Mail. “Fortunately this one popped out and hung around exploring for about six minutes. As the rain got heavier, he was able to shelter for a bit but eventually gave up and headed off home.”
