Seek and ye shall find...Luke 11:9

We just had come back from celebrating my birthday this evening when I caught this tiny Eastern Chipmunk almost bending her spine over backward to reach the suet block. I went out to refill the feeder with sunflower seeds which is what it really prefers although it likes jelly too....I think if I bent my back in that position it probably would stay that way...I will have to say I admire its determination and backbone!!!

    Thank you for your comments and the late birthday greetings Fred. It is pouring down rain but
    it hasn't stopped the chipmunk from coming to the feeder throughout the day ...I feel sorry for
    the birds too as their feeder is drenched with water but they have to eat regardless in natures habitat with the sky pouring water down on their heads...

    Who says that animals don't "think"? And stand on tip toes. Good shot. BTW, the best people are born in September!
