Chipmunks are very common in Colorado. In fact, they are sometimes too common and completely unafraid of people. Unfortunately, chipmunks get fed by people in Colorado because they find them cute. This is a big problem, because many chipmunks now rely on this food source and most probably won’t be able to survive without it. Not only that, but sometimes they get too close, even trying to steal food from bags and picnic tables.
While this chipmunk was not as dramatic as this one, it was still darn cute. It was waiting for me to give some food, but I don’t feed wildlife, so I started approaching it with my camera. At one point I purposely moved the camera towards the chipmunk wanting it to go away, but it stood on the rock, waiting. So, I took a couple of pictures of it, filling the frame, then took off.
