Swedish photographer Geert Weggen works extensively with wild squirrels to capture unique, whimsical images. We’re pleased to feature Weggen’s latest photos, inspired by the sport of winter triathlon, which consists of a run, bike and ski.
Competitor No. 1 makes sure all his gear is ready to go for the big day. Helmet and bike, check. Running shoes, check. Skis, check. Nuts, check.
After a competitive 5-kilometer run, the underdog (squirrel) takes the lead. It’s a smooth transition onto the 20k bike.
Look at that form! There’s nothing like the breeze in your hair on a winter ride.
The race finishes with a 6k ski, and it’s going to be a close one.
Red squirrel is channeling his inner winter Olympian.
And it’s Speedy the Squirrel for the win with a photo finish.
