This second edition has some text corrections and extra photos.
This book has more than 52 pages of awarded squirrel photos. This story is told through the eyes of a female squirrel.
Geert Weggen, a Swedish national and international awarded photographer worked for a couple of years very close with wild squirrels and managed to capture them in a unique and beautiful way.
In a creative way he lets a female squirrel speak and makes the photo narratives sometimes hilarious.
No way that you can hold your laughing while reading this book.
It is written for all ages and it is a treasure to have.
All photos come directly out of the lens. There is no Photoshop used to bring in new elements.
The writer and photographer writes:
"People asked me often if I had a book about my photos with animals and I always said that it will come.
I waited for a writer to appear at my doorstep, but realised that it was me who I was waiting for".
A story told through the eyes of a female squirrel
Geert Weggen built an outdoor studio near his kitchen window. Using a bit of food to lure the squirrels, the studio allows him to capture these cute photos from the comfort of his own home.
Thanks to the various props and sets he created, Geert’s squirrels can be seen whispering to mushrooms, putting on the kettle and getting some work done in the garden.
The studio is conveniently placed one meter above the ground and connected to Geert’s kitchen window three meters away, which enables him to photograph the visiting critters at eye-level.
A partial roof allows the use of a flash and additional lighting, remotely operated, and a big reflector hanging in a nearby tree helps with the fill light.
