These Squirrels Are Totally Ready For The Winter Let the Winter Games begin!These hilarious images show red squirrels preparing for February's Winter Olympics (starts 9 Feb).Mini skis, a snowboard and even a tiny winner's podium feature.Photographer Geert Weggen captured the funny scenes after setting up especially purchased props outside his forest-based home in Sweden.The 48-year-old from Bispgarden uses a mini outdoor studio with an open roof which is attached to a window of his forest-located house. He finds the lure of nuts helps attract the squirrels into unwittingly humourous poses.He explains: "These photos I captured in the last four months. We already had snow in October here in the middle of Sweden, so I could create some winter sports pictures. The winter squirrel games is a funny, but difficult theme. There is not much light and although they visit my garden daily they are there only for a short period during the day. Many scenes have therefore taken me many days to complete. It gives me satisfaction and happiness when I capture in the end the moment I am looking after. And these wild squirrels are always happy as long there is food to be found."Where: Bispgarden, SwedenWhen: 30 Nov 2017Credit: Geert Weggen/Cover Images**MANDATORY CREDIT: Geert Weggen/Cover ImagesOnly for use in this story.
