Today was a rainy, gray day and the
yard was alive with birds and critters.
As I opened the door of the studio to
walk back to the house, I jumped as
all the wildlife suddenly scattered in
all directions.
This chipmunk also took off, but didn't
go far. I became very still with my camera
and the chipmunk would stand up to survey.
It nearly ran into me while I was looking
through the lens for there was a delay!

chipmunks are just about the cutest little rodents ever, and this is a great picture of one!

quiltcat, thanks....ever since I was a child I have loved chipmunks. This one just made me smile. I could tell he or she is very young and we nearly collided later in the day, too.

What a cutie! My parents used to have one that was somewhat tame and would beg for peanuts.

What a cute lil' fellow! Made me smile when I saw him!

Hi Marnie and Judy,
That really is an adorable chipmunk...I've seen him several times today and he makes me smile, too!
I had my camera with me and caught him cleaning his tail and vacuuming the bird feeder once again.

oldcrow 61, thanks, I just love this chipmunk...we keep meeting and there's something so endearing about him or her. Hope Chippy can stay safe.
