The curious one :)

It's amusing how these li'l rodents respond to a camera-toting human around................Some of them flit by even before u can catch a glimpse, others can't really bother about u, and then there are some like this curious li'l bushy-tailed chipmunk, who once done with her food, kept posing for the lens......She'd flit from one tree to another and still lookout for me :)

All these pictures are great; but I particularly love the first one - something about the squirrel's expression.

Wow - these are great shots. You've captured some amazing "expressions" from the little guy there. Way to go. I love the misty forest at the bottom, too.
Great stuff - I'll be back for more!

I remember this little chipmunk..actually a baby one...lapping up spilled latte inside a small cafe at Lake Morraine. He seemed to be a regular visitor to the cafe, as people were givinghim right of way as he sprung in and out of the open door! :)
That little guy wasn't afraid of anyone or anything, just enjoying his coffee! :) Too bad I didn't get a picture.

Very nice shots of the gray squirrel. I have a maple tree that has mature seeds and about four or five squirrels ran out of it one morning. These squirrels are too shy for pictures. Most have been shot at for eating my neighbors pecans. I also liked your spring pictures.
