Chipmunk from Blind

I am enjoying the new blind I constructed this week. Today I made some refinements by gluing some additional connections, using rope to hang the camouflage material, and adding a corrugated roof. The blind is really starting to take shape now.

The few remaining steps include painting the basic structure and making some perches for the birds to use on their way to and from our bird feeder.

Today’s photograph is of a chipmunk that we’ve been seeing for some time. Since I was in the blind, he never knew I was there when he struck this pose. It’s not a great photo by any means, but it gives me much hope that this blind is going to really enhance my wildlife photography!
