Cottage: Chipmunks

There is nothing cuter than a chipmunk. No wonder Walt Disney used them so avidly. If Beatrix Potter had had access to them, they would have been the stars of her little books.

This year, they were very friendly! Thank goodness they are fairly gentle, as my toes resemble unshelled peanuts most unnervingly.

Bruce took a big shine to them.

This is adorable. We have loads of chipmunks at Willow Manor, but ours are not so brave with humans.

I just encountered one this morning. I had a sack full of breakfast, but it took one look at me and dove into the nearest water spout.

Nice shots.

Well, we've been trying to lure then for years. It seems the peanuts did the trick.
