Monochrome Monday – Chips and Acorns

Was able to get out for a bit yesterday and went for a little stroll in a new park.  Some of the leaves were changing colors but there was still a lot of green or yellow and brown.  You have to catch as catch can with nature and leaves changing colors; persistence sometimes pays off unless nature throws a monkey wrench at you 😉  But we did hear some “crashing” through the underbrush.  Well, as much crashing as something that probably barely weighs a pound soaking wet can manage.

I captured this little chipmunk in a hole of a fallen tree going to town on an acorn.

    He’s a cute little guy.

  2. Nice capture. I tried to get a photo of one on our wood pile but did not get far enough along in unbundling my camera to catch it. I had a couple of them run across my bare legs a couple of summers ago. They’ve got some sharp little claws there.

  3. Glad you’re getting out shooting. Progress! Yah!!!

  4. Happy to see you venturing out…hope you are not paying the price today…

    So funny you should write about this, yesterday a squirrel was having his lunch on the rails on my back deck.

  6. Love how you captured him in a hole of a tree…very cute shot!
