Chipmunk a toilette

At our cabin in Upper Michigan, chipmunks are even more ubiquitous than squirrels back home in Illinois. This one felt confident enough to spend several minutes grooming itself in the sun rather than skulking nervously in the shadows, hyper-alert for predators. I photographed him from behind a freshly washed front window.

I think it's holding its head because of the bad economy! :)

I'd say it's a very bad hangover.
