Thought you might like this picture, which I feel is one of the best I ever captured! From our front lawn: The Mother Chipmunk and her two young! Cheers!

Lovely picture, Frank! I like chipmunks, which is lucky because we have lots of them. Do you feed yours?

A chipmunk was running around in my garden today collecting dry grass and birdseed. We've had a couple of mild days, most of the snow has melted, and he (or she) took the opportunity to get out of the burrow, freshen the bedding, and top up the larder. Between two bird tables we have an area of grass (I hesitate to call it lawn, although it is mowed) riddled with chipmunk burrows. My DH was cursing them the other day, because he accidentally put his walking stick down a burrow entrance and nearly toppled over. If a hole gets really large or causes a subsidence I throw a bucket of topsoil on it and level the ground. Chipmunk burrows have at least two entrances - an obvious one and a hidden one - so I'm not trapping a chipmunk by filling in one hole.

Two small fawns I photographed next door last Spring.

Click once on this pic, and you will see why I have to fence everything. How many do you see? Actually, last year, I was working in the very front "Pink Rose" Bed, and I counted 13 deer running down the street at one time, in a straight line!! True!
