If you live in London, there is a good chance you carry a spare umbrella with you wherever you go. If you are a squirrel and you live in London, however, then you better get used to the frequent, completely unpredictable showers.

Taking pity on the squirrels of London, photographer Max Ellis set out a mini umbrella in his garden in South West London. Covering the tiny umbrella handle with some peanut butter and sunflower seeds – so the squirrels would know it’s for them – Ellis set up his camera and waited to see what would happen. And, well, the results are pretty amazing.

“Just singin’ in the rain, what a gloooorious feeling!”

You never realize what an ingenious invention an umbrella is until you really need one!

Ellis explains to the Daily Mail that within minutes of setting the umbrella up, one squirrel came to investigate and stayed for six minutes, playing with his new rain shelter.

Squirrels usually hide or burrow when it rains (understandably), but this little guy was keen to stay out and adventure for a bit.

“As the rain got heavier, he was able to shelter for a bit but eventually gave up and headed off home,” says Ellis, “After that we didn’t see another squirrel all day – sensible creatures.” Yes, even the squirrels in London have that distinctly British sensibility.

Although this story and the photos are heart-warming and cute, we do not encourage our readers to feed wildlife. Feeding wildlife interferes with the balance between wildlife populations and their habitat and could lead them to be reliant on humans for survival, amongst other problems. If you find an animal in need, contact a local wildlife rehabber/rescuer or veterinarian ASAP, or call a rescue hotline. Here are some that might help!
