Weekend Shooting Gallery Fun

Panamint Chipmunk 0349

Panamint Chipmunk 0365

Like most in the west, even the Sierra got warm this past weekend, getting up to 86 which is warm for 8000′. The new shooting gallery is getting more and more active which is fun. Over the weekend chipmunk love found it. It’s that time of year when the Panamint Chipmunks find each other and in the process, make baby chipmunks. It’s fun to watch them as they watch each other looking for a partner. Their tails just go nuts wiggling with excitement. This female took a breather resting on the roof of one of our nesting boxes as the males circled below. Shooting with D4 / 800mm, it’s a test of my panning, vertical panning as they go up and down the tree trunk using them like a vertical highway. But it’s a ton of fun and permitted me to stay inside and cool and still shoot.
