These well fed squirrels are simply NUTS about food.

The chubby critters appear to be squirreling away one too many nuts for winter as they stuff their tiny faces.

And they have become so comfortable around Pandrea Dax they even eat from her hand.

She is able to take hilarious photographs as they happily fill their bulging cheeks with nuts.

Pandrea, who snaps the squirrels in her garden in Illinois, USA, said: “They’re nature’s beautiful creatures but I love them as if they’re my own.

“I also travel to places locally and photograph the variety animals there.

“Nearby towns have black, grey, and white squirrels along with the fox squirrels and chipmunks.

“Even though the animals are used to coming here capturing the photo is still a difficult task.

“It requires a lot of patience time and steadiness as the little critters can be really quick.”
