The first day out for this guy after a long winters sleep.

Hi Tom,

This is a great shot! I've been trying for years to get a really good shot of a chipmunk, but they're just too fast for me so I haven't managed to both get close and still get the shot.

A spectacular photo, so very crisp. But I know you got this thing with animals. You could say "My name is Dolittle, Doctor Dolittle" and everyone would believe you.

Darn good shot Tom!
couldn't ask for anything more. far as I'm concerned it's a 10.

Great shots Tom. I saw my first chipmunk of the year just yesterday. Naturally I didn't have my camera with me.

Thanks everyone, right now I find them cute, but later when they start chewing up my siding on my house, not so much so.

By the way, the first shot is with the K20D and the last is with the istDS, both with the same 300mm lens.

Wonderful shots! And it goes to show that even though the DS might not be the newest camera in the world, put a good lens on it and it still takes awesome pictures. I really love the detail in the first one.

Really nice photos of a difficult subject. These guys are just so small that you have to be pretty close to get good detail, even with a long lens. I love the detail on the first shot.
