Habitat
Eastern chipmunks live in shallow burrows in the ground. They are partial to areas near rocky crevices, decayed tree trunks, and fence corners. They do not like dense forests where no sunlight reaches the ground. Burrows are made by digging and carrying away the dirt in their pouched mouths. Unlike prarie dogs and other sciurids, eastern chipmunks do not leave the dirt in mounds near the entrances of their burrows. This makes it harder for predators to find chipmunks in their homes. These burrows can be up to 30 ft. in length with several different exits and tunnels. Eastern chipmunks conceal the exits with leaves and rocks. They may inhabit these burrows for several years.

Bonjour Marie,
Très beau portrait de cet écureuil rayé, qui n'existe pas chez nous, je crois. Tu as mis le focus sur les yeux et la tête et au contraire as crée un l'arrière-plan flou et neutre, ce qui rend l'image très belle. Belle réussite, Marie
Bonne journée
Anne

Hi Marie,
Beautiful close-up of the little critter. Excellent POV and detail. Very well captured.

Hi Marie,

An adorable close-up of this chipmunk. How did you get him to stay still long enough for a shot? I love the face, eye, and whiskers. Good details of them all and of his coat. Nice natural colors. A real cutie pie.

bonjour Marie,

tout d'abord je dois dire que j'aimes beaucoup
l'angle de vue de ton image et la pose du tamias,

excellent background, et excellent netteté et détails du sujet,
juste une toute petit chose (plus facile à dire qu'à le faire
dans l'action) j'aurais aimé voir un tout petit peu moins
d'espace dans la partie haute de l'image, TFS

Salut Marie,
C'est un des animaux les plus photogéniques! Qu'elle petite beauté! A-t'il quelque chose dans les bajoues, il me semble avoir une grosse gorge :) Les détails sont superbes et que dire de ces yeux!

Hello Marie,

I think this chipmunk knew about your skill with a camera! She is posing with her 'best side'!

This is an excellent sharp image and the details of the fur, eyes and whiskers are superb! Well done, my friend!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Il est tellement mignon avec de très beau détaisl, d'une grande netteté.

Salut Marie
C'est vrai qu'ils ne sont pas facile d'approche, ces petites bêtes. Ta patience fut récompensée.
Excellente photo qui montre une frimousse anxieuse, inquiète.
Félicitations et bonne journée....JP
