Chipmunk berry picker by gregsmith

Currently unavailable for purchase

Was sitting on a small rocky crag at Mud Lake having a quiet moment. This chipmunk arrived and began thrashing about in a bush just a few feet from where I sat.

Intent on getting to the berries on a bush that could not support his weight, he resorted to all kinds of gymnastic type maneuvers.

Very entertaining.

    Awesome capture Greg…Staying wary while eating upside down…what cute little nervous Nellies these guys are!
    I really love how you “catch” all these fabulous and beautiful little critters doing something unusual, interesting…and more often than not, comical… =) Takes patience, close study and perfect timing…terrific!

  • Thanks Karen for your kink words once again. Greg.
