Feeling Chipper

I was down in the backyard taking a picture of this handsome Robin as he perched on the fountain rocks…

…when out  popped this chipper little fellow.  I’m pretty sure we were both a bit startled.

After retreating several rocks away, he gave me a glance and I guess decided that I posed no threat to him.

He then proceeded to give himself a thorough grooming.

As he stood giving himself a “cat bath”, he was completely oblivious to the fact that he was in danger of becoming “cat bait.”

Unlike the chipmunk, however, the cat clearly decided that I was undesirable company and opted to explore other hunting grounds.

Meanwhile, this little guy darted into his rock fortress, only to emerge right beside me.

There’s no denying that he’s a cutie!

  1. such adventures in your backyard Kathy!!!! 🙂 Love the bathing shot with the chippy’s little hand and “fingers!”

  2. Hello Kathy Doremus ! I was wondering which type of camera you use for your photos, they are lovely. Thank you, Riona

    1. I rotate between two cameras – a Canon SX50HS (which is a powershot on steroids that has really good zoom) and a Canon t3i with a 70-300mm lens. 🙂
      And thanks for the kind words. 🙂

  3. Awww, this fellow is too cute! I loved seeing them scoot over my deck when we lived in MD, but now we only see squirrels. Lovely shots!!
