[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here's an Eastern Chipmunk (Tamias striatus), my neighbour actually, i found the other day.. sitting like that! ..on this tree trunk, at the edge of a cliff.. and basking :)

Yes, it was a cold day indeed. And, as a matter of fact, i found him (or her).. at a point in time.. rubbing the hands :O
The wind got crazy then, so it was getting colder.. Such a seen!

[Canon PowerShot SX40 HS. No tripod.]

Thanks for viewing. Happy to share.

Very detailed photography work.
Sharp too.
Excellent focusing. And, all WITHOUT a tripod.

Hello Ruby,
What a cute little chipmunk and displaying such a nice pose. You captured it perfectly showing it's pretty markings and beautiful coat in just the right lighting. I see it has it's tail slightly wrapped up over it's legs, as if it was effected by the cold breeze just like you were. Good eye contact and a pleasing clean blurred BG. A real beauty Ruby!!
PS. The birds should be in full migration within the next few weeks here in Ohio, hope you are starting to see some up in your area as well. I'm planning to be up at Magee Marsh around the 8th. and 9th. of May. I'm excited!!
