If you have seen a little squirrel in the park begging for treats or browsing through picnic leftovers, you will probably agree that they’re one of the cutest creation ever. Perhaps the incessantly curious and hyperactive nature of squirrels is exactly what inspired British photographer Max Ellis to start shooting these cool pics of everyone’s favorite woodland rodent. Ellis is a professional freelance illustrator and photographer from the U.K. who caught our eye with the beautiful wildlife photography on his 500px page. Although he has tons of awesome photos on his account (which everyone should check out, by the way), his photos of squirrels with everyday objects were by far the cutest.
Ellis studied photography at University of Brighton and has been working as a professional photographer for 15 years, moving between photo-illustration and pure photography.
