Nutkin and Chipmunk

My contribution to Eileeninmd's Saturday's Critters #139. I don't often see Nutkin and a chipmunk together in the backyard, but here they are. (Pics are from the 2nd floor, the remote+tripod option is out for now.)


For Anni's I'd Rather B Birdin', here are Mr. Cardinal and his sparrow friends:

Last but not least, a Tiger Swallowtail on butterfly bush:

Nutkins and Munkins hanging out together? They must be planning a big birdseed heist.

Hello, Cute shots of the Chipper and squirrel. The swallowtail is beautiful, great captures.
Thank you so much for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

Of course the cardinal is a favorite of mine...I do so enjoy [and never tire of] seeing them. Both the male with the striking reds, and the female too---with her coat of silver.

Excellent images as always....
Thank you so much for linking in at I'd Rather B Birdin' this weekend.

I love Chipmunks. I think they are adorable. Beautiful photos!
When we were in Georgia, Black Kitty, in an effort to show the cats from next door that he was the 'Big Dog', killed a bunch in one day. But, he has calmed down now, especially since losing 9 of his teeth.
In Texas heat, black fur gets toasty, even for BK. He comes in right after going out for a stroll these days :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a Happy Week ahead!!
Peace :)

I'm so jealous. I never see swallowtails in my backyard. I wonder if they're even found in Florida.
