Red squirrel flies to its delicacy in superman pose

Amateur photographer Albert Beukhof pictured a leaping red squirrel mid-air in a forest near Tessenderlo, Belgium. 

The red squirrel perfects its Superman pose as it soars through the air, hunting for food. The bushy-tailed animal stretched out its paws as it leaped across tree branches to grab hazelnuts.
