Chipmunk, Laudholm Farms, Wells Maine

I posted a shot of an Eastern Towhee digging in a just dried vernal pool the other day, and mentioned that a Chipmunk was following it around the pool looking in the holes it made for acorns…well seasoned by their time underwater. The Chipmunk was so intent on its task that it paid no attention to me. It was just over 6 feet from me here…6 feet in line of sight…so maybe 3 feet from my foot. Such a treasure! It got that acorn tucked in its cheek pouch and scampered off to store it with its hard.
