Jane Gamble typically trains her camera lens on birds. She’s a passionate birder who lives in Alexandria, Va. But when the birds are boring, she’s more than happy to shoot some squirrels.

“I think for wildlife photographers, squirrels are like Victoria’s Secret models,” Gamble said. “They’re easy to photograph, and they always look good.”

Well, hers certainly do. Gamble’s photo of a gray squirrel reaching up to some pink crepe myrtle blossoms as rain begins to fall was the winner of the 2020 Washington Post Squirrel Week Squirrel Photography Contest.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Squirrel Week. In honor of that, I’ve stuffed my cheeks with a ton of photos from this year’s contest. They range from the sublime to the ridiculous, from the furry to the funny. Enjoy!

May all your dreams be full of squirrels.
