Forgotten Photos - Chipmunks

I totally forgot about these pictures until today!  I took these back in July when we were in Breckenridge, Colorado, for the 4th of July.

People come and feed these chipmunks all the time, so they'll come right up to you, crawl into your lap, and eat out of your hand.  There are soooo many of them - they ran all around you.  

Now, if you know me at all, you know that this was a scary experience for me - I have an irrational fear of basically all animals.  (Yup, that's right.  Blame it on the neighbor's dogs that would run up to us when I was 2 or whatever you want, but whatever the case, if it moves and breathes and isn't a human, I'm probably scared of it.  Except for bugs and spiders - I'm not scared of those :) Needless to say, I did not feed the creatures, I just took the pictures....

 Can I get a round of applause for shooting these with a Canon? (Haha saying it that way sounds like I shot the chipmunks with a cannon :)  Nothing against Canon, but I'm a Nikon girl, and I've only ever shot with a Nikon, so it was super hard to adjust.  EVERYTHING was different!  Even the zooming was backwards!  But my camera was out of battery, so it was my only option.  (And of course they're unedited, because I can't stand editing :)
