The lens the photographer got a rare squirrel albino
Amateur photographer of wildlife 54-year-old Tim Clifton during a walk in the Park County of East Sussex in the South of England could take a photo of a rare squirrel albino.
“I was sitting on a bench, and a squirrel came up to me. She looked at me as if to say, “Got anything for me?” … She came to me in a “white suit” covered in ground nose, and, it seems, didn’t think it ruins her image. It was pretty funny,” said Clifton.

According to the photographer, though usually quite shy squirrels, this rodent was very brave and posing for him on camera for about an hour, writes Daily Mail.
Clifton said that once he also happened to meet a squirrel-albino, but in that moment, the camera at hand was not.
“I am very proud and excited to be able to get these pictures. Now they complete my collection, which also has footage of red and black squirrels,” added Clifton.
Whites are albinos are extremely rare — approximately one individual per 100,000.
