Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s super-squirrel!

This is the hilarious moment a photographer managed to capture a squirrel doing its best Superman impression.

Although the squirrel may look as if it is practising its best super hero impression it was in fact tree jumping on the hunt for food

Using his Pentax, K7 camera, Andrey, 40, managed to photograph the squirrel as it ‘flew’ from tree-to-tree collecting pine cones.

Andrey has been photographing squirrels for more than two years but had never seen a squirrel behave quite like this.

He said: “I’ve been photographing the red squirrels for many years, but I’ve never seen them flying like this, this squirrel was certainly one-of-a-kind.

“It looked so spectacular, the squirrel reminded me of the real superman as it looked like it was flying through the forest.

“I’ve never seen squirrels fly through the air like this, it is not only beautiful but stunning to witness.”
