The chipmunks are everywhere abundant this year. We see them every day around the yard. They have made repeated attempts to undermine our rose bush. They like to play hide and seek among the marigolds in the planters on the back deck. Carol rescued one from drowning in a water bucket yesterday, and I suspect, from the nighttime noises in the walls, that they have gotten into the house. This one was on the boardwalk at Laudholm Farms, and let me walk right up to it. The shot is cropped only on the long axis, full frame otherwise…so I as close indeed. I have to admit, I have a lot more time for chipmunks than for squirrels, which this year, is a good thing. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent.
