About This Image

This morning my dog Daisy and I went for our walk in the desert. After a short time I spotted this Chipmunk up in a Cholla Cactus. For some reason this one just stayed on top of the cactus and let me take around 15 photos. After the photo shoot I said thanks and continued on.

Hi Julie, Thanks for checking out my photo and for your nice comment. The Chipmunks can go up and down the cactus no problem at all, It is safer in the cactus than on the ground. Daisy does chase them when she can, she was off doing something and did not see it.

That had to have hurt. Maybe he couldn't figure out how to get down without it hurting. Great Shot and your dog didn't scare it away either! Daisy must be well trained.

Thanks very much Karen :-) I remember those Disney shows, I haven't thought about those is years... Daisy does help and hurts things but most of the time she is out doing her thing 100 yards away. It is amazing how the chipmunks can run up and down the cactus like it's nothing.

Beautiful wildlife image. It reminds me of those Wonderful World of Disney wildlife shows from the long ago. Your dog probably helped convince this little one to stay high in the spines! Lol! Ouch!

Hi Beverly, Thanks very much... It was really nice of him, most of the time when I see them there running away at full speed.
