Photographer Captures A Breath-Taking Moment

Human beings have long occupied the Earth. So, it is quite likely for us to be aware of the many secrets of Mother Nature. Nevertheless, nature is unpredictable, and only when you know that you have all her secrets in your belly, she comes up with something new. All of a sudden, she will surprise you with something awe-inspiring and beautiful.

You will always find something to experience and witness that you might have not found in the past or were not able to capture with your naked eyes. Duijn clicked one such breath-taking scene. He not only captured images of ground squirrels but also found one smelling the tastiest of the flowers growing in a field. This little creature was found testing one floral after the other in the images that came forward.

Photographer Captures Squirrel Doing Something Beautiful

Duijn from the Netherlands captured the image of a little squirrel trying to reach out for different flowers, smelling them and trying to find the perfect one. The images showed the squirrel moving from one flower to another. After a series of encounters, the squirrel was finally impressed by the smell and beauty of a yellow daisy.

The images of the prying squirrel were finally taken after a struggle of two hours. The picture shows the little being holding the daisy very close to the face while closing its eyes. Afterward, it seemed like a testing and sniffing period, this cute little being leaned on the daisy to have a bite of it.

The Difficult Endeavor

All the different pictures clicked at the very moment are equally beautiful and captivating. However, the one where the creature is found inhaling the smell of the flower with eyes closed is especially appealing.

In an interview with Fox News, Duijn, who is 34 years of age, said that though the picture makes him happy and satisfied, it took him a long time to capture one. The able photographer claimed that it took him 200 various shots for coming up with the perfect moment to be captured on camera.

He posted the pictures on Facebook saying that he had long been waiting to capture these cute little beings. The talented photographer further added that these acrobatic, curious and funny gophers were on his list of photography for a very long time.
