Another favorite.

I got so excited yesterday morning when I spotted a chipmunk on my deck, the first one of the year. I read it as a good omen, that the warmer weather was going to be here soon.

What a sweetie! A chipmunk is an animal which is not indigenous in my country, and that is a pity. Your photo is very clear and sharp.

It is a good omen. I laughed going to a festival in Italy and they had chipmunks for sale for 20 euros.I couldn't imagine them a pet, but have thrown a few peanuts to them.

Well, I would say it is a good omen. What a cute picture, my chippy has not come out of the wood pile yet. Summer before last I had a little Red Squirrel, he looked so cute when he ran, actually he looked more like that skunk, Peppy La Phew in the comics, because he kinda hoped. Thank you for coming by and have a nice weekend.

Oh, that is such a good sign! And a darn cute photo too.

How cute! I haven't seen a chipmunk in a good long while! (I'm talking years!)

Do chipmunks hibernate? I take it they do and so I understand your excitement. Such pretty, entertaining little creatures!

Chipmunks are frequently incarcerated for our entertainment over here. What a delight it must be to watch them out of the kitchen window where they belong.

I often am confused as to what is a chipmunk and what is a squirrel. I don't think either one habitates in Hawaii.

gigihawaii said...

Denise, mahalo for the link! Now I know the difference between a chipmunk and a squirrel.

Hello Denise! It has been some time since I visited your blog and others! Lots has happened since I visited you last. Presntly I'm snowbirding in Arizona.The nature world is waking up from their winter hibernation here in the southwest. I see desert squirrels popping out of hiding and lizards and soon the snakes..you know me a true naturegirl.
Blessing to you.Loved this image!

Denise, as hard as I have tried, getting a good photo of a chipmonk has always eluded me and my camera. And, I have never seen one around our yard, but other places we've travelled, including the zoo.

What a cutie that little chipmunk is! Thanks so much for dropping by for a visit and for being a new follower on my blog. I've decided to follow your blog too.

Oh, what an adorable close-up!

Kay said...

Ummm.... I don't get excited when I see a chipmunk by my house. They have this awful habit of burrowing all around the house and sometimes causing a problem with the foundation. They are terribly cute though and your photo really got his good side. :-)

Cute chippie, Denise! I sure hope it is a sign spring is here. Great photo.

Valerie said...

It's a great photograph. I've never seen a chipmunk except in pictures. I envy you having them so close.

Those little faces with those fat cheeks. Irresistable!

A fabulous shot of the cute little critter. I love your header too.

Isn't he just adorable!

Hi Denise, I love your giraffes and your birds... But --I do NOT like Chipmunks. They are so destructive (making tunnels in our flowerbeds and under our driveway)... Yes--they are cute.. BUT--I don't want them here (and we have SCADS of them).

Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy
