When I first saw these perfectly “mirrored” photos, I thought these were probably photoshoped. But actually they were all naturally taken in a forest by Scottish photographer Alan McFadyen.

To set up the scene for photographing, the 50-year-old photographer took advantage of dry days in May and June to dig a large hole in a wooded area of Dumfries, Scotland. He then spent three days filling the hole with 200 buckets of water. Since there was little water to be found in the area, all kinds of animals such as birds, badgers, squirrels, and foxes soon showed up at the new watering hole. The result of all these digging, waiting effort is impressive. The water’s surface created perfectly symmetrical reflection of the wildlife and McFadyen successfully captured them.

Below are some photos of this collection and you can find more on McFadyen’s site or Instagram. (h/t: petapixel)
