This is truly amazing, and he is looking right at YOU! And right at US! How close were you anyway? The chipmunk is super cute, I wish we had some around here. We had them when I was growing up, we had a wooded area out back. If we were really still for a long time, they would grab a peanut from our hand then run.

You've been busy as a bee capturing this busy bee with the big eyes boring into my bony skull! Cute as a bug, though. Is a bee a bug?

I love this image. Photography makes my heart sing,

I'm unfortunately out of practice and was also greatly discouraged by the quality of my last series of photographs. Warm regards

Good eye, EG. As usual. I planted echinacea last summer in an out-of-the-way part of my yard and it seems to like it there.
