BY THE TWINKLE IN THEIR EYES YOU MAY KNOW THAT THEY ARE FRIENDLY AND HAPPY 00 WITH LIFTED PAW HE MARVELS OBEYING ACOMMAND "Two difficulties presented themselves in getting certain poses of the small chipmunks. They moved so quickly and they were sofriendly and inquisitive that they would leap directly upon the camera instead of staying in front of it. When a small chipmunk camerunning toward me, hewas almost certain to stop for the merest fraction of a second to reassure himself that everything was all right. Friendly, trusting, inquiring, tome that expression embodied the whole personality of the small chipmunk. I despaired of ever getting it, because the moment was so briefand there was no certainty oftelling when that glad scamper toward me would be arrested. In exasperation one day, I snapped my fingers at one littlescamp (lower right) and shouted, 'Stand still, you rascal!' No one had ever spoken that way to him before. He stopped, most surprised, and I got my picture."
