Well, I know I'm not the only one who likes them. I caught this little fellow in the act. I was able to get quite close with my camera before he scampered under the railing painter next to him with just enough room for him to fit. After I left he ran out again to finish his feast.
A small section of the plants. The chipmunk must jump up on the the railing, using a small table nearby to start his jump, then scurry along the railing to eat his purloined goods. That's OK, I have a lot to share and I don't think he eats very much.
