Artist's Description

A least chipmunk (Neotamias minimus ) climbs through the dense foliage of a black twinberry (Lonicera involucrata ) seeking the plant’s dark berries. Most humans find the dark fruits too bitter to eat. However, the berries seem to taste fine to chipmunks and are clearly worth the effort of scaling narrow branches and pushing through broad leaves. Several of the rodents harvested the morsels along a streambank, sometimes hanging over the rain-swollen waters, and were quickly claiming all the berries for themselves.

The black twinberry, also known as the bearberry honeysuckle, is grouped in the same genera as the familiar trumpet honeysuckle (L. ciliosa ), two plants with dramatically different growth habits. The former is a shrub, while the latter is a climbing vine.
