Chipmunks #WordlessWednesday

We have at least two (probably more) chipmunks living in our small back yard this year.

I can't help but not upset it.  The cuteness factor is too strong.  They like chasing each other, but I am not happy when they disturb my plantings.

Here, an Eastern chipmunk is exploring one of my plant containers.  These pictures were taken on October 14.


Hey! Get out of my planter!

Resistance is futile.  Instead, I sit in the chair where I am blogging, wrestle my iPhone out of my pocket, and start making Mr. or Ms. Chipmunk famous.

The upright plant, incidentally, is called a Persian shield.  Unfortunately, it will die with the frost.

Here he or she is.  This is the only chipmunk we have in the East, so ID is easy.

Jumping out in one fluid, blurry, motion.

I haven't been sitting out there recently, as it is too cool, but it's supposed to warm up again this weekend.

  1. I do not know the English word! There are so cute!
    I am curious why they prefer that plant! Due to the flower pot, probably!
    Thank you for these adorable shots.
    Happy WW and a fine week!

  2. ...we have two that chase each other around the yard.

  3. If we had a chipper in one of our planters, the planter would be doomed as we would be after the critters so fast. How fun for you to just watch them.

  4. Good captures there Alana just at the right time too

    Have a chipmunktastic week 👍

  5. Chewing plants is one thing. But I am not the only one around here who has had chipmunks through the cement foundation wall to gain entrance into the house. And chewed through the air intake for the furnace and got in. Not cute!

  6. They are cute, but they can be destructive. I know many have places for their outdoor plants so they can survive winter.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

  7. So cute! I'd sacrifice some plants to have them!

  8. Chipmunks are cute to look at but they can be a nuisance ~ cute photos though ~ Xo

  9. How lucky you are to have your own personal chipmunk!

  10. We just have foxes and squirrels... Not that a chipmunk is all that different.
