..This incredible photo captured the divine moment a hungry squirrel looked to the heavens for his next meal.

The once in a lifetime snap was taken by Martin Patten who witnessed the spiritual scene at The British Wildlife Centre in Surrey.

Hoping for a pray-zelnut? A squirrel looks to the heavens at The British Wildlife Centre in Surrey

The 47-year-old from Watford was on a trip with other budding amateur photographers when he spotted the squirrel's bizarre behaviour.

The father-of-one said he knew immediately that it would make for a great picture.
He said: ‘When I first saw the squirrel it was very excitable running around everywhere sniffing out food.

‘Someone I was with held a nut up in the air and he just reached up for it straight away.

Got it! Moments later the squirrel enjoys his nut

Thanks, God! Again, the squirrel looks skywards a possible gesture of gratitude after getting a nut to eat

‘He stayed there for a good thirty seconds, it was just like he was pleading with her.

‘I realised straight away that it would be a great picture opportunity as it was such
a comedy moment.

‘It was just one of those rare occasions, something you don't get to see very often.’
