tree critter and the suns rays

 ~ click to enlarge photos ~
 I call the tree below the Charlie Brown tree because
I've never seen it with leaves and I think it would look
cool with Christmas decorations.  The birds seem to
love perching in it.  A couple days ago I noticed a bird
that seem to look a bit odd so I grabbed the camera.
Why it wasn't a bird at all.  It was a chipmunk.
If you look closely you can see it is nibbling on 
some of the feed that I had put out on the ground.
It was very foggy this morning.  The corn field next door
and the field out back had extremely low visiblity.  When I
went out to fill the feeders I noticed the rising sun was trying
to filter through the fog and it appeared to be pushing the fog
through the openings...I thought it looked pretty cool.
Here's a slightly different view that shows how foggy
the back field was at the time the photos were taken.

I chuckled at your post. I am constantly seeing things outside that are not there. And of course, I always think it is something rare but it's a robin or jay. Like you, I've taken to using my camera to identify my "unique finds." Don't you love those misty, foggy mornings? Great shots.

I too see things that aren't what I think they are...cute chipmunk. I wonder why there aren't any here. They are welcome. I love the morning shot.....Michelle

Loved your chippy shots and the first sunray shot is simply awesome! Nothing is quite as pretty as the first sunlight of the morning.
