I used a nikon 950 to take this photo of a chipmonk in the rocky mountain national park earlier this year hehehe

I think it's a chipmonk anyhow hehe

Cute little subject. I saw loads of these at Waterton Lakes last summer. I like your choice of having the tree in the foreground right. This would have been a really great up-close shot with the chipper on that reddish deadfall.

Thanks normcar! Yah...I didn't a great deal of zoom on the nikon 950, and these things run around and dart about so fast. Like one second they're there, and next second they run off again. The chipmonk disappeared very soon after I managed to snap the picture. I really agree it would have been really nice to have captured this chipmonk at close-up sitting on that reddish wood.

Nice shot!! It would have been nice a little closer, but it's still cute. If it's
chipmunks you want, come to the woods of central PA. It's polluted with them in the spring, fall, and summer (they're a sleep now for the winter).
I have a ton of photos of them. In the wild, I think they are so cute. However,
at home they aren't so cute when they dig up my garden. Anyway, here's one
of my many photos of them:

Nice shot woodmeister. Very sharp and good colours. The nikon 950 is 2 megapixel (and I used the 1600x1200 setting for the original picture), and this chipmonk just darted out very fast, and ran off again hehe. The first picture I posted was reduced to 800x600. In this attached pic, I cropped the image of the 1600x1200 shot...the focus isn't all the best, but still just viewable. Would have been nicer to have been much sharper though.

Ok Norm, here's one more. All I have to say about this one is, "Mmmmm,
