    Beautiful photo of mother and child…..

    When we lived north of Seattle for a number of years, we had chipmunks who loved to eat out of the bird feeder.  One time one crawled inside.  He was a fat little guy….

    Thanks for the view and the good memories of our chipmonks.

    Such a wonderful photo! I don’t frequently comment on your pictures, but I enjoy each and every one of them. You do a marvelous job of capturing the wildlife in this area. I really appreciate the work you do.

    Amazing!  Our chipmunk  population at my home in Shasta grows and diminishes over time.  I have never seen one of the little ones.  Oh, this is beautiful!
