Breakfast at the Birdbath





Our birdbath is surrounded by rocks,

 which make a perfect hideout for wary chipmunks...


 



























This one found a little snack from the bird feeder.


Linking with Camera Critters.

I really like how you propped the birdbath on rocks. That looks great. I love chipmunks. We used to have lots of them in our yard. Sadly, our cats think of them as a snack. So I'm glad they stay away. But I can sometimes hear their chirpping in the brush.

Great photos, love these little guys. Love your birdbath with the rocks. To many people to see these little Chipmunks in my back yard, but I know they live near our river.

Love your little Chipmunk, he's a cutie! I'll trade you 6 squirrels for your chipmunk!

I love the stacked rocks - perfect shelter for this cute little guy.

What lovely chipmunk photos! I love that first shot and the ripples on the surface of the birdbath. Chipmunks are such rapid little creatures, aren't they? I remember being greatly amused by their antics when I visited a national park in Canada a few years ago.
I love the flat rocks that serve as a base for the birdbath. Lovely textures and colours and lines. A perfect place for a chipmunk to hide and have a little snack taken from the bird feeder!
Have a lovely weekend, Connie.

Oh Connie!

Chipmunks are such fun to watch, and these images of yours are way too cute Connie! We have one that is missing part of it's tail, that keeps our indoor cat entertained for hours. I promise, that Chipmunk knows it is getting to her too~

These pictures are so fun to enjoy looking at the wildlife playing hide and seek around your birdbath. How fun for you to capture creatures at play.

He is so cute. They are so shy, I'm sure this little fellow appreciates the hiding places. I love your first photo!
