The View from Jake’s room

This movie requires Flash Player 9

That thick meadow we call a front yard is a nursery right now full of small critters finding easy cover to grow. Well Jake has created a pretty sweet shooting gallery right from his bedroom window. It’s a miniature version of what I have at my desk. He can spin to the left at his desk and shoot the spring kids (he has his WII to play while it’s slow out the window, I ain’t got that).

These are baby Panamint Chipmunks, there are four in this family that are enjoying the seed Jake has put out for them. They are so darn cute. When they greet each other, they smell each other which to us, looks like they are kissing. To get the photo, flash fill was required to bring up the colors in the pelts. The flash feathered so it wouldn’t hit the foreground. I gotta go now, Jake wants his shooting gallery back.
