I was using a tripod w/ nikon D60 & Tamron f/2.8 (which i found in my mothers old box of nikon gear; circa 1970). I had initially setup to shoot birds, but none of those shots came out.After two hours of shooting, this little guy showed his face. After a while, he became accustomed to my presence and kept moving closer and closer. Fortunately, he was a hungry bugger and stopped every few seconds for a snack. I never expected to be shooting a chipmunk that day...
