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.

    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.

      Little guys have to protect themselves some how I guess 🙂

        But I just want to pet one without getting my fingers chewed off!

        They are pretty cute. We feed them from a cup on our front steps. They like sunflower seeds.

        I bit quicker each day. I know it is much easier for me to say this as I’m not trying to do it.
        Keep smiling!!!

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