Wait I'm not ready yet.

Chipmunks are small, striped squirrels. All species of chipmunks are found in North America, with the exception of the Siberian chipmunk, which is found in Asia.

I find 'munks are pretty much fearless too. They will often saunter right up to people to take some offered food or just to check you out. It's like there are just so many of them that they never needed survival instincts to actually survive o_o

or maybe that's just the 'munks around here. XD

Many years ago, when I was a child, I had a tortoise shell cat who lost her litter of kittens. On several occasions, I saw her chase down chipmunks and pin them to the ground, and once to a tree branch. She would wash them and let them go. I will always remember seeing her from my bedroom window, on a large branch about twelve feet above ground, licking a chipmunk.
We have chipmunks here, but they don't ever seem to climb trees, preferring to hide in the ground.

I held a chipmunk once, it had been chased by our outside cat and was exhausted. I picked him up and put him out in the woods where after he recovered he ran away.... it feels strange holding something wild like that...

They just let them be,... not so for black and grey squirrels. If they catch them by putting their paws on their tail, the poor dogs don't know what to do and just let them go. :-)

Yes, laughing for too reasons. 1 because a chipmunk on a tripod is so comical and adorable. 2 because I have to stay still as a statue to get a chipmunk to so much as run past me and you have one goofing off on your tripod. :D How did you make friends with them? They seem so comfortable around you.

If you promise to tell my little secret..... there is a log on top of the tripod with sunflower seeds. It is an easy way to attract wildlife. I did the same thing to get them to play on my camera, xmas candles or my boots. :iconawedanceplz:

ah, they're so cute! When I used to go on nature walks with my mom, we would see a whole bunch of chipmunks burrowed out in these strange rock formations. My mom and I called it chipmunk village. :D
