On Thursday of this week I looked out the kitchen window and to my surprise I saw the resident chipmunk at the base of the bird feeder. The camera was ready and I was able to get several good photos of this little lens friend.
Chippy was getting his/her fill of the black oil sunflower seeds dropped by the birds.
Just look at those back feet. The claws are really long as he/she has been sleeping all winter. Perhaps once Chippy has done some climbing they will wear down a bit.
Are those cheek pouches filled with seed?
Perhaps he/she woke up early and was hungry or perhaps he/she wanted a play in the snow. Whatever the reason I’m glad I spotted him/her out the window.
I’m sharing with Camera Critters.
Have you seen any lens friends out and about earlier than usual in your garden?
Have a look at some more of my lens friends photos.
