Nancy Rose is a guidance counselor who lives on Canada’s east coast. When she’s not meeting up with people who need counseling, Rose enjoys spending time with a very special group of furry friends: squirrels that call Rose’s backyard their home.
In recent times, one particularly dear friend and photo subject has been Mr. Peanuts, a friendly squirrel that lives to the left of Rose’s yard, on a neighbor’s land. Rose has Mr. Peanuts pose for all kinds of cute scenes by creating scenes with tiny props, and then convincing the little guy to pose using peanuts.
Mr. Peanuts is a regular portrait subject for Rose, but the little guy is an aspiring photographer himself:

Rose’s entire collection of squirrel photographs is available for your enjoyment through this Flickr set.
