Rushing To and Fro

Once you stop rushing through life, you will be amazed how much more life you have time for. ~Author Unknown

Chipmunk scurrying
Where ya goin’, Little Guy?
Too busy to talk.

Note: I’m participating in WordPress’s 2018 Photo Challenge. This week’s topic is A Face in the Crowd. I took this shot while visiting the Chicago Botanic Garden with my son a couple of years ago and this seems as good a chance as I might ever have to show it to you.

  1. OMG Debbie, how CUTE!!! Whenever I see a chipmunk, I think of the cartoon I used to watch when I was a kid….”Alvin and Chipmunks!”

    Fun post, my friend! And great photo capture!

    • Thanks, Ron. I loved those chipmunks, too! Weren’t they the cutest things?? I’m still shaking my head over this photo. This little guy scooted out from under a bench or something, and my first instinct was to snap his picture. I can’t believe it came out as clear as it did, considering how FAST he moved!! Woo-Hoo, it’s almost the weekend! xx

    • No chipmunks?? I didn’t realize that, FF. We see a LOT of them on golf courses. I imagine all those trees are beneficial habitats, not to mention the large areas for burrowing underground. I doubt anybody could catch one and transplant it across the Pond. Sorry!!

  2. Well, if you’re going to post a face from the crowd, you might as well post a cute one, and this is high-calibre cute. I’d say he’s smart as well as cute. What little chipmunk wouldn’t want to live in a botanical garden?

    • You’re right on both counts, Linda — he’s cute AND smart!! I had no idea the poor little dears have a lifespan of only about 3 years though. I remember golfing with Domer when he was in high school, and we saw a lot of these little guys on the golf course. I never managed to react fast enough to snap their photos then because they hurried into their burrows — probably afraid some idiot would aim for them!

    • HaHa, no! I just get lucky sometimes! He was scooting by so fast that I didn’t think I’d gotten anything but a blur. Imagine my surprise when he came into view!
