Chipmunk/Top Shot

 Chipmunk out foraging

Last Monday the weather was warm, and this chippy was out and about looking for yummy treats. He was here, he was there, he was EVERYWHERE...excited about the spring weather.

Chipmunk returning home

The entrance to this guy's home was not very well hidden.

I am linking to Madge's Weekly Top Shot.

They are lovely, but dumb as bricks! They camp out in our backyard, with 4 cats in the house!

Valerie said...

Charming captures of a cute critter, "E.G.". You did well to capture it in between it's frantic to-ing and fro-ing! Thanks for sharing.

They drive our dog crazy, but I love the little guys. Cute shots!

Nicki said...

Nice and close pictures - always thought chipmunks were so darn cute.

Randy said...

Too cute.

You really got some great shots of that little guy. We seemed to have big black squirrels here and no chipmunks, you are lucky to get those little guys and to find their nest, that is big!!
I really enjoyed looking at your pictures, very nice work.

Chipmunks are always cute guys to photograph. The one that lives in my backyard has made his (her?) appearance to let me know she survived the winter.

Chipmunks! Golly i enjoy them. I used to live in Lake Tahoe, Nevada - where they were everywhere and CUTE,

A few years ago I saw an albino chipmunk here in the city at the History Museum . . i didn't realize they existed.

Now we have them in good numbers around my neighborhood - I call them "peeps" - because that's the sound they make.

Happy Day!!

Lowell said...

Was his name Dale perchance? Cute. I hadn't seen a chipmunk in years until we visited Colorado. We must not have them in Florida; either that, or the hawks have eaten them up! :)

NatureFootstep said...

I love the name Chipmunk. A bit of rebellion I think. :)

ladyfi said...

PerthDailyPhoto said...

The chipmunks look like such sweet little creatures, but I get the feeling they can be a bit if a pest oui ? Beautifully sharp images EG.
