In the photos, the little squirrel reaches for a yellow daisy and touches the flower to its face. It closes its eyes as it seemingly inhales the flower’s fragrant scent. Moments later, the rodent leaned in and took a nibble, 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.”

This story serves as a lesson for us all to stop every once in a while to smell the flowers. But maybe not eat them…
