Hey, these are my nuts!

Chipmunk

F/5.6, 1/160, ISO 800.

There’s no case too big, no case too small
When you need help just call
Ch-ch-ch-Chip ‘n Dale
Rescue Rangers!

I found Chip stuffing his face but Dale was nowhere in sight. ( And I needed help )  🙂

Interesting Fact: A chipmunk’s cheeks can expand to three times the size of its head and they have pouches in their cheeks where they hold their food until they get back to store it in their burrows ( http://www.pets4homes.co.uk/pet-advice/fun-interesting-facts-about-chipmunks.html )

  2. He looks so cute 🙂 , nice info nugget on chipmunks tho. One question, what’s the difference between a squirrel and a chipmunk? They kinda look the same to me.

    • Thank you for enjoying my work. Chipmunks and squirrels are very similar but they are in fact two different species. Squirrels are larger and live on the ground and trees while chipmunks are smaller and burrow underground to nest. 🙂
