Default Chipmunks

It looks like a good crop year for the acorns and hickory nuts. This means a good autumn and winter for all the nut-eating creatures!

Home park's playground is full of these little rodents lately - there are LOTS of nut trees in the playground area, and plenty of soft, mulch-covered places for easy digging.

This footbridge (made of recycled plastic) is a favorite chipmunk perch.

Have not figured out how to post them here, but put a few videos of the chipmunks "in action" at the home park's facebook page. If you are interested, you can see them here:

Most of these photos (and the videos) were taken with my good-old SMC 135-600. Hope you enjoyed them, and hope they'll encourage you to go out and enjoy the busy little "critters" of the season. Thanks for any comments & critique!

I really enjoy the chipmunk photos, and their storage protocol. One can really "dig" the video of this active little creature. Thanks for the photos (and the videos on the Facebook site)!
