Anyone who lives in or has visited Great Britain knows that the weather is unpredictable, so when photographer Max Ellis spotted a squirrel in his garden in Teddington one rainy afternoon, giving it a mini toy umbrella to shield itself was a no brainer.

It "sucks" of course - could have been intentional as well to get internet users talking. Continue reading for more.
