Vadim Trunov, a radio engineer from Russia, photographed this red squirrel in a forest in the Voronezh region. ‘I fed the little squirrel nuts which he then took and hid in the snow. I then made a snowball and put it beside him, and the squirrel ran up to it, grabbed it and picked it up. Perhaps he was looking for the nuts inside. This happened again and again, so I decided to make a small snowman to see if he would be interested. To my delight he ran up and started nibbling on the carrot which I used as the nose for the snowman, it was great to watch,’ says the 30-year-old who spent around three hours watching and taking photographs, as he lay in the snow close by.
