Photos From May 19, 2010-Chipmunks, Skunks, & Raccoon

More Chippys. I like the photo with two of them sitting together, watching for danger..

The Chipmunks and the squirrels all together. There are five Chipmunks in one of those photos!

This skunk came out early in the rain last night. They love the rain. He's eating nuts that he's found in the grass.

The Raccoon came around 9:30 pm last night. He was out there with the skunk. I'm going to try and get some video of him if I can get enough light on him. When he stands up against the building he can almost look right into my window. Guess he will be a regular here now.

These are such great photos. I love to see wildlife around my house. My neighbors don't always like it, but we do. Great job and a nice post!

So many chipmunks on the ground. There must be abundant of food around.

I love the way the animals come around to you in so many different combinations. So many chipmunks! It reminds me to share the chipmunk I recently saw. I never get any that come out into the open like that.

Thanks Pat. I live in a senior apartment building and am not supposed to be feeding these critters but I have for almost 14 years now. Some of my neighbors don't like the skunk smell and blame it on me. I just laugh. Ha!
Joan. I have too many of those furry skunks here. Most of them are all white on their backs. But I enjoy them too. Especially when there are babies. So cute!
Rain. I do feed the critters way too much. The chipmunks are thriving despite the foxes. Guess the foxes can't catch them. They are fast little guys!
Ratty. I seem to have way more Chipmunks this year and I will be seeing baby ones soon. The rat isn't around any more so I don't worry about it killing them.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments everyone!
