This Photographer Made A Tiny Bed For A Squirrel That Has Been Frequenting Her Garden (11 Pics)

Published 7 months ago

While stuck at home during the lockdown, Bournemout-based wildlife photographer Sharon Cutler only had her own back garden to do any photography. That’s when she decided to take some photos of the wild squirrels that were always in her garden. Sharon also remembered that she had a tiny handcrafted bed that she once used to take photos of her daughter’s guinea pig. The photographer then modified the bed, placed it in her garden and took photos of the squirrels that came to enjoy it.

Sharon then uploaded the photos to Facebook and people absolutely fell in love with Cyril the Squirrel who came to enjoy the bed after a busy day in the garden.

In an interview with Bored Panda, Sharon said she made the bed a couple of years ago as a prop for her daughter’s guinea pigs. “I’ve been off work for over a month because of the coronavirus and as I’ve only had my back garden to do any photography, I decided to see if I could get some images of the wild squirrels that are always in my garden,” said Sharon. “I just hid some peanuts amongst the bedding and the squirrels took to it straight away.”

In another bathroom-themed photoshoot, Sharon used a little bath she had in her own bathroom and handcrafted the tiny towel rail, towel, and bath mat to complete the scene.

Sharon says she has lots of ideas for future projects and jokes that the only thing stopping her right now is her hot glue gun being broken. Hopefully a new one arrives soon!

Who knew the tiny creatures could be so photogenic!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!
