    This guy never stuck around for long. I would have liked to get a better angle for the second one. I kind of enjoy watching them scurry around, it's entertaining.

    Thanks, I forgot to mention they were cropped quite a bit. I didn't want to get too close, I figured he would run off any second (he did). He seemed to be keeping an eye on me.

    The second (including the crop) is wonderful.

    I have tried to capture chipmunks for the last several months. A total of 0 keepers. So I know how hard this is to capture.
    Nice shots

    Would you mind telling us the details, what camera, what settings, what lens?

    I love your Wildlife photos. They're truly eye-catching! Wonderful images captured in all Wildlife photos. My favourite is last one , It's better than first, like chipmunk is in joy mood, I enjoyed your photos a lot and I do prefer the Wildlife. You have a strong feel for contrast. I like your style, keep up the great work!!

    Very nice! Wildlife is tough with a 200mm.
