Wednesday while cleaning up around the kitchen sink, I noticed something moving along the stonewall. Normally it's one of the very plump chipmunks scurrying in and out of the rocks and the tunnels they've dug beneath my plants.
In fact, calling out for Katniss to watch for another fat chipmunk heading her way when I glanced in her direction, she was crouched on the small reg rug near the slider...waiting.
Yet once it emerged from the thick ferns and I saw what it was, I forgot all about Kat waiting and couldn't get the camera fast enough. Pecking at the rocks and among the crevices, I hoped it was snacking on the small ants that have really been a nuisance this year.
