Spring is rapidly approaching, and if we have anything to look forward to Spring, this image is the one for us! Peacefully sitting on a flower, the adorable creature was caught on camera in the sweetest way. It’s difficult not to smile back at this lovely shot.
Andrea, being a wildlife lover, has photographed different sorts of creatures living in the northern hemisphere. He is particularly adept at catching animals in their most endearing poses, from a curious bear in Finland “waiting for a hug” to a cheeky-looking wapiti in Yellowstone National Park with its tongue out.
Responsible for this lovely snap is the talented wildlife photographer Andrea Zampatti, and as it turned out, the happy dormouse didn’t just fill Zampatti’s heart – and ours – with joy, but he also brought him a (deserved) award at the 2017 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards. ‘The Laughing Dormouse’ surpassed all the other – adorable and hilarious – photos and took the prize in the ‘On Land’ category.
Some of his images below illustrate his talent and the beauty of our wildlife:
The perfectly timed image is sure to warm your heart. This talented photographer doesn’t only capture cute mice but also captures photographs of a wide range of creatures.
