Eastern Chipmunk

I saw this Eastern Chipmunk at Reiman Gardens in Ames, Iowa. I was standing on a bridge across a creek, when this little guy caught my eye. I moved to take a picture of him, and he quickly shot down his burrow. I waited for a couple minutes, and sure enough, he popped out, and ran over to get some leaves, then ran back down his hole. He continued this for about 10 minutes. I was about to leave when he stopped running, and crawled up on this ledge, and seemed to pose for me.

Eastern Chipmunk on the lookout!

Some people call chipmunks pests, but personally I think their too cute to be classified as pests.

    Good shots. We don’t have Chipmunks in the UK so they also have novelty value for me.
