I am having fun with my new camera. This is a chipmunk I saw when I was hiking last week. It was pretty far away but my camera caught it anyway.
I have a friend who has many chipmunks living in her yard, and she has been calling them all Charlie. I liked that idea so much that I find myself doing the same. In this case it was clear that Charlie was on vacation, because he was not at home in her yard.
He was not particularly happy about humans invading his vacation domain and chirped at me using some choice chipmunk insults (Your mother is a hamster and your father smells like elderberries!). I took pictures anyway, and pretended not to understand him.
