Ready for your daily dose of adorableness? A wildlife photographer based in Norway recently had an incredibly cute encounter with a fox cub when out on a photoshoot. Jens Birkeland was capturing images of a fox cub when it decided to steal behind the camera and say hello. Luckily, fellow photographer Marius Birkeland was on-hand to film the entire interaction on his camera phone and post the subsequent video onto TikTok

The video shows the fox cub cautiously approaching Jens Birkeland, who is lying on the ground and waiting to take photos. At one point, it even tries to playfully bite and drag Jens' trousers!
