Chipmunk Cuteness

Chipmunk in a tree

This morning I found out that chipmunks climb trees. Rebecca was the one to notice this little cutey in the tree that grows near the window by the kitchen table.

We got to watch it nibbling away on the fruit of our crab apple tree. It would poke its head out of the leaves and grab a crab apple and stuff it into its mouth.

Originally it was on the end of the branch near the window, but by the time I got the camera out it had moved. You can just make it out in its leafy bower. Another chipmunk was rooting about in the leaf litter at the base of the tree.

It was a very nice way to start off the day.
