Yesterday's photostream is having technical difficulties so I posted a few of the images here. The rest can be viewed (and are for sale) at my online ART GALLERY. Inside the gallery click on Precious Moments to see more from the series below.
I get three months out of the year with these little critters, so I make the most of it. They climb in my lap and come when I call and let me pet them. Often one is climbing on me while I'm taking a picture. I've had them sit on my head while I'm focusing my camera. Yesterday two of the chipmunks met up with me on my walk. I was taking a picture of some wild flowers and I felt something on my foot. I looked down and it was Half Tail .... my little chipmunk with a scar on his head and a half a tail from some brawl.
Life in the woods is quiet and probably entirely boring to most people, but it's therapeutic and soul feeding to me. The world is so full of crazy these days that I have a hard time processing it. This peaceful world away from it all ... restores my balance. I don't know why I write about it... I was pondering that question today. I'm still pondering it...
I'm an artist, writer, photographer, private investigator and an activist in small ways.

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.

even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."
