This was my first photo of one of Chippy’s babies from 2010. The litter is much more timid this year than last, but they are so fun to watch because everything is new to them. They pick up wood, rocks, and flowers and explore them with their mouth the way a baby does. When they find out it’s not food they’re off to something else. When they’re young they also play with each other unlike adult ground squirrels. It’s a precious time!

    How sweet!! Look at that face.

  • He was quite shy! I hope to get some better shots in the coming weeks, but they’ve grown so much that I’ll miss the “baby” look, which I love. I have an old oak floor to refinish this week that will take me away from my photography :(
