Chippy Friends

Seeing a chipmunk always makes me smile —  so yersterday I was smiling a lot as I watched two of them scurry about.

This one is so cute with such a big peanut in his mouth.

Here he is just checking things out from his perch on the nubby part of this tree. I had to take a number of pictures to actually get just a few good ones — the little creatures are very fast and sometimes are only a blur once you see the picture.

This is the other one that I was watching — I could tell the difference because this one had a normal size tail and the other’s tail was short.

His cheeks are already bulging, but he is still putting another almond in there — it amazes me how much they can stuff in all at once.

Now he is scurrying away to store his treasures for some other time.

I am writing this while outside and Mr. Short Tail has been out again — making me smile some more.
