I went out for a short walk on the Kennebunk Bridle Path yesterday, just to see what I could see. I was almost back to the car when I heard the sweek of Chipmunk close at hand. I turned to search the nearby trees and brush and almost missed this specimen, peeking out at me from a crack between trunks not 10 feet away. He waited to see what I would do while I got my camera up and took a few pics. Then he was away, round the back-side of the tree, and though I looked, I never saw him again.
