"Hello!" Chipmunk Peaking Over My Backyard Fence

Chipmunk Peeking Over My Backyard Fence I have a lot of friendly wildlife critters in my neighborhood, and one morning this little guy decided to come out and join the party. He started out on my back fence to say "hello," where I took this shot. From there, he moved along the fence to my tree, then to my flower beds, my birdbath, and then to my back deck. Finally, he tried several times to come inside to join us on the couch until he discovered our puppies. Then, suddenly, he decided he was more than happy to say hello from the fence from now on.
