Earlier in the afternoon, I missed a shot of a chipmunk going into a storage cupboard outside the hotel. So I went in search of more chipmunks and found this little guy.
He'd hide if I moved closer, but he'd always come back out to keep me in sight.
He started making a little chirping noise, which I mimicked back to him in response.
I must have done a good job, because he kept talking to me. We had quite a conversation.
Finally, the biting bugs drove me away...I'd have stayed longer if it wasn't for them.
I also saw a groundhog, but he went underground before I managed to get a photo. I've never seen an actual Eastern groundhog in the wild before. I also saw a loon on one of the golf ponds...another first.
