Photo of the Week 111

Photo of the Week 111
Hold on tight, the weekend is almost here.  It's almost time for you to relax and enjoy some time with your family.  While you traverse this remaining work day, here's something to lift your spirits a little.  Check out Cramer Imaging's featured "Photo of the Week."  This week, we have a cute little guy for your viewing pleasure.  This week's photo is a hungry little chipmunk who is busily stuffing his face full of food.

This little chipmunk was one of those opportunities which presented itself while we were on the way for another potential photograph.  He was just too cute to resist taking some pictures of.

I was walking by with my camera ready just in case of something like this.  A large mushroom had already caught my attention so I was ready for something else to do so as well.  Some rustling in the bushes also caught my attention and led me to this little guy.

I couldn't believe that there was this wild chipmunk just sitting there when I saw what the commotion was about.  He was happily munching on some food.  I pulled out my camera and went for macro mode.  He stayed put.  I started getting really close and he continued to stay put.  He wasn't bothered by my presence: my very close presence.

I took several shots but had difficulty getting the camera to focus on where I wanted it to.  For some reason, it wanted to focus on the vegetation in front of the chipmunk about half of the time.  It was a constant struggle to keep the focus where I wanted it.

This time, when I stopped taking photos, it was not because the animal ran off.  It was because I needed to move on before the light failed and I missed the shot I came to try for.  Usually, it's the animal which decides when I'm done shooting pictures.  It was a refreshing change of pace in wildlife photography for me.
