!!*Photography* Challenge Group!! Happy Holidays :-)

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

Chipmunks and NOT GREY/PINE squirrels

This challenge closed almost 5 years ago.

The Challenge

Red Squirrels
Black Squirrels
Other squirrels that are NOT grey squirrels.

Grey squirrels are common enough around the world that they can have a challenge all to themselves.

Focus is chipmunks but for those who have never seen them, rarer squirrels are accepted.

Can be cuddly toy or ornament chipmunks but if of the “actual chipmunk” form, must be alive and healthy.

As close to straight out of the camera as possible please. No composites at all. No superimposed images. This is the photography challenge group NOT the photoshop challenge group. Thanks!

WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!


  1. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids, reptiles or butterflies – thank you!
  2. also, nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises…)
  3. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, keep images with writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject)

Note: Please don’t be disheartened if your image is removed from the challenge, you can always ask us why that happened, but the usual answer starts with the challenge description – please read it :-)
