OMG - a ribbon for me?!!! Wow.
This is a real shocker as I had no intention of entering the challenge. I had no creative ideas and figured anything I forced out would be horrible. I was simply sitting out back taking photos of the chipmunks eating the bird seed....this one struck me as very funny. During editing I reluctantly decided to enter it into "Seed". I'm glad I did now.

TY everyone for the nice comments and the scores!

hahaha, we used to put corn in a bucket that was tied to a string and lay it on the ground below the porch and chipmunks would run in there and grab corn and we would lift up the bucket, chupmunk fishing:P this photo made me laugh, brought back the good days of being a kid.

What a great idea, the little guy certainly looks like they are having fun!! Techinically I would like to have seen all of the face in focus and possibly a little more light on the top of the head but I you have captured some great detail and the subject works well against the background :o)
