Dick van Duijn, 34, from the Netherlands, spent two hours and took roughly 200 photos in order to capture the moment.
In the photos, the squirrel reaches for a yellow daisy, touching the flower to its face. Its eyes close as it seemingly inhales the floral scent. Moments later, the rodent leaned in for a tasty bite, said the photographer.
“This curious ground squirrel started smelling and tasting the flower,” the photographer recalled. "I was really happy after capturing a photo like this."
"I went to Austria especially to photograph the ground squirrels,” he added. "It was great to witness this, and very satisfying."
