my yard, Cohoes, NY (suburban upstate NY)
I just love chipmunks! Most of my neighbors consider them to be pests, but I invite them to live in my yard. My elderly Mom and I feed a huge variety of songbirds, but we also welcome the chipmunks and squirrels to eat their fill as well. There are several chipmunk "clans" in my yard -- under my front AND kitchen steps, under my shed, and under my firewood supply. I don't even mind the little critters taking their small share of strawberries, since they leave plenty for the humans! This little guy stopped to survey his kingdom for a moment, and I happily shot his cute little portrait.
