Quiet and unassuming by day,

Chipmunk

a fearsome protector of the wild country by night.

  2. Thanks! The first is one of this year’s babies (one of eight born to a family that shares our yard with us). The second lives about a mile from here and was still standing guard at sun-up this morning when I passed by.

  4. The image in the second photo looks like a promo for the new movie, “The Chipmunk King”.

    Or, maybe he’s just stuck, and can’t get down.

  5. Bernie,
    He thinks he is. He’s on the trunk of a pine that was snapped off a few years ago during a violent storm. I’ve seen him up there before a few times.

  6. Pinhole,
    It’s his version of “King of the pine”. He doesn’t know you’re supposed to have more than one to play that.

  7. Although his secret identity is almost perfect, in the first shot he’s unable to hide his bulging quads, or his rippling abdominal muscles.
    If I were a coyote, I’d have my tail between my legs right about now.

  8. Yup, he’s certainly a force to be reckoned with! If I’d had my wits about me, I would have asked you to do a caption for this one!

  9. How’s this? Should it be ‘R’ rated, perhaps?
