Belgian photographer Niki Colemont wanted to show the squirrels’ “extreme flexibility” which makes for fantastic photos.
“I have gained the trust of the squirrels by photographing them for six years,” Colemont tells PetaPixel
“I have learned how to approach them. I can anticipate exactly their next move making it easier for me to frame my shot.”
For his nutty photo shoot, Colemont used a Nikon Z9 and a Nikon Z6 II along with a Manfrotto tripod.
“It is still a challenge to capture a good jumping shot so I have made a special wood jumping platform for the squirrel to land on,” he explains.
