I see you see me...

I had been up for some time but the rest of the crew had just emerged from the tent.

I heard a chirping in the weeds around the campsite and went looking for what I thought was going to maybe be a frog.

As I approached the large boulder, which had become a frequent pedestal for various wildlife during our summer visits to Site #1 at Blackwell, I noticed a bit of movement.

We locked eyes.

It was like an "I see you see me" staring contest - neither of us moved... neither of us blinked...

I raised my camera... click, click, click.

I lowered my camera and we resumed our game of "I see you see me"...

I tried to get my son's attention...

One 'psssst'...

Another 'psssst'...

A muffled 'James"!

As James responds I shift my eyes ever so slightly from the deadlock with Mr. Chipmunk...

Gone.

It was a good 45 seconds that little Mr. Chipmunk and I maintained our game of "I see you see me" - a portion of that through my 55-300 lens...
