How often do you stop and smell the flowers? If you don’t take the time in your day to do it that often, let these photographs of ground squirrels taking the time to smell flowers inspire you.

Dutch wildlife photographer Dick van Duijn shared these delightful photos on his Facebook page. One photo in particular has gone viral. It shows a ground squirrel, his eyes closed in bliss, smelling a yellow flower.

Van Duijn, 34, took the photo while visiting Vienna, Austria this past summer.

Omdat ik niet in de gelegenheid ben om naar het buitenland te gaan om de bijeneter te fotograferen, ben ik vandaag een dagje naar de nieuwe vogelhut in Emmen geweest om deze prachtige vogel vast te leggen.

These ground squirrel photos remind us a bit of the photos of harvest mice in fields in England.
