great shot!

It's rare these little guys stand still for a portrait.

standing still

Thanks! I took a series of these, each getting closer, always expecting it to bolt, but it didn't. I figure the ones in this area must get fed.

I had to chuckle

when I saw your pic of this cute little guy. Also because I also have a shot of one that exhibits some "attitude". While I have titled mine as a chipmunk, I do acknowledge it is really a golden mantled groundsquirrel. My pic is HERE.
