Taken last month in Gunnison National Forest, this little one was not a particularly cooperative photo subject. It was in a virtual constant state of motion gathering its food for the winter and very wary of me when I was near. Least chipmunks are not rare but it had become a matter of pride for me to get its danged picture. One evening, I pulled up a spot on the ground and sat and waited. And waited. And waited. Finally, after almost a half hour it decided to make a brief appearance and posed. It was kind of silly to be so determined to get a picture of a common critter but I at least got a shot.
