More than Birds

More than birds visit the natural bird feeders.

This little Chipmunk has visited the natural bird feeders with the big glass focused upon him so often that he is no longer camera shy.  Posing cutely for the portrait he probably wonders why he's receiving so much attention.

While unconcerned about the cameras and camera men he still keeps a sharp lookout for the hawks who occasionally disrupt an otherwise peaceful morning of raiding the till.

Oh wow he is very cute and the picture is just fantastic. I love the composition there and the light. A pure beauty Coy!

So cute and looks like he's enjoying a meal! I love chipmunks - they are so friendly, I've got a couple that eat out of my hand at the cabin.

He is pretty cute.I guess he has figured out that the camera and it's operator are less of a threat than the hawks.Pretty smart.
Blessings,Ruth

Fantastic picture yet again. We don't get chipmunks this side of the pond so I am a bit jealous. I will have to make a concerted effort to photograph our natural wildlife instead.

I must admit that they sure are cute little critters. I just have to laugh every time I see one running across our driveway with his tail high in the air. They are so fast, that it's hard to capture one with my camera.

You got this one just right! The nice out of focus greenery - he's in such sharp focus and stands out perfectly. Nice work!

Coy, what a sweet little fellah, Chipmunks are cute, but oh so naughty ~

Thought I'd visit some old friends. I haven't been visiting you much and trying to catch up.

So cute. Love it.
