Photographer Focuses His Camera on Squirrels to Capture Their Emotions, and the Results Are Adorable

Photographing squirrels isn’t an easy task. Whenever they feel threatened by the presence of humans, they start running with all they got. However, Johnny Kääpä has dedicated most of his time to do that and has managed to pull out some incredible shots. Johhny has been photographing squirrels for a couple of years. What he looks for in a photograph is the feeling it gives out. Now dealing with squirrels it can be quite challenging to be able to capture their emotions, but this talented photographer didn’t fail to serve.

“I have no idea if the squirrels have a lot of emotions, except hunger, fear, and sleep, but I would like to think they do. And I always look for pictures that seem to express those feelings,” said the photographer. He had taken thousands of shots and it’s hard to select some out of his collection. His love for squirrels and photography got to other people as well, where so far he counts 17.8k followers who support his work.

We managed to make a collection with some of the most recent images he has shared. Scroll down below to check it out and enjoy!

‘Absolute Units’: 30 Times People Saw Something So Big, They Just Had To Submit The Pic To This Online Group

In photography, size manipulation of an object is called forced perspective. Forced perspective is a technique that manipulates human visual perception to make an object appear larger, smaller, closer, or farther away than it is in reality. Think of Italy’s most typical tourist picture with the leaning Pisa tower. Or someone holding the sun at sunset in their palm.

Yet, this post is not about faking the size of the items in photos. Instead, the article is about all the real-life objects and creatures that the human eye is not used to seeing that massive. Even the picture doesn’t do its justice to convey its scale. 

Welcome to Reddit page Absolute Units, also titled “Lads that you’re in awe at the size of.” This subreddit offers a variety of pictures featuring animals, people, statues, anything you can think of that is extremely ‘oversized’ and not at its ‘natural’ size. From giant humans to frogs with unexpectedly ‘thicc’ thighs, prepare to see the Giants (no, not the baseball team).
