Shenandoah Sepia Critters

For a long time I wanted to get a clear photo of a cute chipmunk. They are not as bold as squirrels and usually they scamper away as soon as I spot them. Fortunately, this guy held still for a minute.

I've also had difficulty getting a clear picture of a wild turkey. I finally got a clear shot in Shenandoah National Park.

I can't help but wonder, "Why did the turkey cross the road?"

And why did the deer cross the road? 

I go up to Shenandoah National Park fairly often, and see deer about half the time. This one was standing behind recycling bins at Dickey Ridge.

  1. That's exactly what I first thought, why is that chicken, in this case turkey, crossing the road :) Nice images Linda!

  2. Cute little chipmunk picture!
    Good also other animal images.
    I hope you will not drive a car, do not get run over.
    Be wary animals.

  4. Great photo of a very frisky critter. I had to take a shot through the RV window from 30 feet away to get a shot of our little raider.

  6. Some animals can be so skittish. When I see chipmunks here, they're always on the move.

  7. Your post made me smile today. :) I've tried to get a picture of a chipmunk too, but have never been successful. They hide too quickly.
