Chipmunk at His Home by Joe Elliott

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

This is a photo of a wild Chipmunk taken at Big Meadows which is located inside The Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. This Chipmunk is sitting in front of the rocky opening to his home, and he finally sat still long enough for me to squeeze the shutter button.

Canon EOS-40D with a Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS lens plus a Canon 1.4X Extender on a Bogen tripod.
