    So this is pretty much the happiest picture you'll see all week.

    Here's Stacey Wallace, 28, at Lightning Lake in British Columbia's Manning Park.

    She told Rex Features: "In order to get the selfie I laid on the ground metres away from the squirrel and slowly crawled towards him until I got close enough so that we were both in the shot. I took all the photos with my iPhone front camera."

    "I also coerced it with raw nuts to come out of his hole. You can see the nut sitting in front of his face. The little guy also allowed me to hold it. It's actually a ground squirrel I think. But they burrow in holes so that's more like a gopher."

    "This was after our selfie. I coerced him out of his hole with a nut that he's holding in his paw. This isn't zoomed in either, I actually got this close to him."
