Ground Squirrel of the Desert

by Kristi Hines · Arizona, Phoenix


I’m always confused on whether these little guys are ground squirrels or chipmunks, but whatever they are, there are a lot of them running around in the Arizona desert, and they are cute as all get out. Happy Monday everyone!

Hmm… our chipmunks looks different. He/she is cute anyway. Love the big eyes and the whiskers.

Nice shot and once again you have caught a great animal pose. :-)
Chipmunks here in the east have a stripe running along their side, not sure about your neck of the woods.
Cute capture in any case.

Happy Monday back. What ever he is, it looks like he had his coffee (eyes don’t get much wider than that).
