Your wish is my command! I was up very late trying to decide what to write about for today while at the same time reading the comments here on the blog. I saw one more comment on The Cutest Poll Results requesting more chipmunks, so I'm happy to say that I'm going to deliver on that late night request. See how late I sometimes write these?
Anyway, I haven't really seen any chipmunks for quite some time. I had been going back to the park where I saw them so many times before, but I just didn't catch even a small sign that they were still there. I didn't know what happened. Then by sheer coincidence I decided to go back late in the evening!
When I got there I found where the chipmunks had gone! Well, maybe not where, but when. They were out in force on this late evening. I was encountering them everywhere while they were scurrying all over their usual territory. The only problem was that they didn't seem quite as curious as they always did before.
Make no mistake, they were indeed still curious little critters; but along with their curiosity was a little bit of anger that I had invaded their territory. There were several of these little guys that actually turned and screamed at me as they ran past! This seemed more like squirrel behavior than chipmunk.
Now I guess you might be wondering, since I said I saw so many chipmunks, why I have only these two photos to show you. That's an easy answer. They were moving so fast that I could only get a few shots of them, and only these two were not too blurry to keep from causing headaches all over the web.
It may be a little short, but that's my story of my latest chipmunk encounter. This is what happens when you end up writing your posts in the middle of the night. I have other news for you too. I'm hoping in one of these next few weeks I'll be bringing back my fiction Friday posts. Maybe not every week, but hopefully the ideas I have will turn into a few good stories.
I'll be back later to read your comments and catch up with your blogs. I hope I haven't missed anything good. I'm trying not to run too late again. I still owe something to someone with a herd of zombie chickens!
