Precarious Banquet

I decided to wait just a little bit longer to see if the Tamias Sibiricus would return to it’s precarious banquet table.

After hiking down the trail for only a few minutes, I spotted this little Korean Chipmunk gnawing on a nut in a tree. Because I had my wide angle lens on the camera at the moment, I slowly tried to change the lens without scaring it away. In the minute that this process took, the chipmunk finished its meal and scurried away through the underbrush. Should I wait for it to come back? I had the telephoto lens ready now, so I decided to see if it had just gone for seconds.

Evidently this was so. Most of the time, it pays to wait!
