His series of photos show the squirrel holding a daisy, then its eyes close as it appears to inhale the flower’s scent. The photographer said from what he observed, the squirrel was trying to find the flower that would taste the best.

“This curious ground squirrel started smelling and tasting the flower,” the photographer recalled. “I was really happy after capturing a photo like this.”

He told SWNS he traveled to Austria to photograph the ground squirrels.

It definitely was worth the trip!
