Meet Booboo the guinea pig, the pride and joy of 23-year-old Dutch photographer Megan van der Elst.
The 2-year-old blondie is so relaxed and cooperative that she makes the perfect model for van der Elst, who demonstrates her passion for the cavy species with her trusty Canon 500D.
"What I love the most in pictures is the out of focus elements, in other words bokeh," van der Elst writes on her website. "The Canon 50mm F/1.4 is by far my favorite lens, because that lens has it all when it comes to bokeh."
