Photographer, Christie Pierce captures the magic of these wild chipmunks on her wooded land in rural Spokane.  Christie creates small-scale scenes in her backyard, lures the “stars” into them, and takes photographs that are both hilarious and amazing!  She uses a hand held camera, and beyond adjusting for contrast or taking out small bits of seed, she doesn’t use any digital manipulation.  Only natural seeds are used for bait, and all her actors are willing participants!

Christie likes to say “Every picture tells a story, and there’s a story behind every picture!”


Her images are available in cards, calendars, and her new book “FriendChips; Around the Mountain.”
