From The Porch ~The Chipmunk

Do you see her? This little chipmunk is hanging out with the concrete bunny in front of our porch.
She seemed to like having her picture taken,
Such tiny perfection, such glossy fur, such bright eyes, such delicate little fingers ( paws?) She is busy though, there are seeds to be eaten and gathered, and I think she has young ones waiting for her in some cozy , safe haven hidden from the cats and any other predators looking for little chipmunk snacks.She is so bold and fearless though. I hope she stays safe , she is a sight to enjoy from the porch.

She really is cute. My parents had a little chipmunk family once that lived under their deck. We would place a jar lid full of water out for them and they would drink just like a cat or dog from it!
Sending my love and good wishes to you and yours, Kathy.

Chipmunks wouldn't last very long here because of our outside cats since they're always bringing us dead chipmunks all the time! Once a chipmunk got in our house and we held the door open and one of our cats took it back outside for us.

chipmunks are adorable! in colorado,
they're tame enough to creep up and
take a bit out of my granola bar!

I think we quite possibly have TWO chipmunks! One is the FRONT door Chip and the other the back door Chippy.

At least I believe there are two and Chippy isn't running back and forth from door to door just to confuse me!

Great photos, Kathy. She is a cutie. We have a chipmunk that lives behind our front steps that I see every once in a while. :)

I miss chipmunks! When I lived in New Jersey, we would always see them in the woods, but we don't have them here in Florida. I think they are just so adorable! Yours is beautiful, and you got such perfect pictures!
