One Cute Criminal

I’m pretty sure I caught this little thief by surprise when he landed on the deck rail, ready to steal some seed.


Once he realized I wasn’t going to shoo him away, he stretched out like a slinky and lounged in the seed tray while I stood and smiled as he munched to his little heart’s content.


It really should be a crime to be so cute!

    They really are cute if you concentrate on their cute factor and not on the damage they can do. My daughter has never recovered from the loss of their AC to one of these little munchers.

    Cute Chipmunk! We used to see these all the time at the lake but rarely see them now – the Squirrels took over! Like your shot of the chipmunk munching on the seeds. πŸ™‚

    Your criminal is very cute indeed πŸ™‚ Cheeks full of seed, but I hope he left little for the birds too.

  4. Happy Birthday, Kathy!!! A little birdie told me……this is your year to soar, my friend! πŸ’›πŸ’œπŸ’›

  5. I confess that I’ve had a soft spot for chipmunks ever since my long-ago introduction to Chip’n’Dale! Then again, I’ve never had to deal with their depredations either, lol

  6. I use to have a soft spot for one chipmunk, but then he brought his whole family and friends to dine in my backyard.

  7. He´s totally irresistible!!! ❀️

  8. He is a cute little varmint! Cousin to our destructive little squirrels.
