First little chippy


This little guy was hanging out up in the tree tops munching on an old dried berry from last year with cobwebs clinging to the branches where surely leaves now reside. They were the first Chipmunk we noticed this spring and reassurance that winter had finally given way.

  1. The title brings a smile to my face, Mike, there’s something about the first chippy of the season. And this photo is an artistic statement of the beauty of life with the light on his forehead hairs, the bits of red, and the spiderweb. Beautiful post.

        I associate them with camping as a kid because the campgrounds were full of them. They can be harder to see in the woods.
