Alvin, the Chipmunk - resident of our under-deck. In this shot he has come out foraging for food and has found a handful of seeds and worms. We are not actually face to face since I shot this from inside the office through a double-glazed window at 300mm.

    This is fantastic, Don! I have never seen a better shot of a chipmunk. Send it to National Wildlife Magazine, along with your bluebird shot.
