Artist's Description

The Chipmunk sitting upright is a female ( note her teats) and I’m not sure, but I think the one who has quickly made its appearance might be one of her young from a previous litter. It is somewhat smaller and so that is what I am assuming, especially considering she put up with the youngster the way she did. lol

Note; This image is not quite as sharp as I prefer and it was due to the quick movement of the one Chipmunk, my larger lens and shutter speed combined. Considering all, I was quite pleased it turned out as sharply as it did!

INTERESTING FACTS!

The eastern chipmunk has two fewer grinding teeth than other chipmunks.
A chipmunk can carry nine large nuts at a time: four in each cheek pouch and one between its teeth. .
Cheek pouches can stretch as it will awaken to dig into its hidden supply of nuts and seeds, stored during the summer and fall. almost to the size of the chipmunk’s head. .The chipmunk stores only hard food that does not mold, such as nuts and cones.
A chipmunk may store up to 8 pounds of food in its burrows.
