I've had a few inquiries about the picture on my latest site banner. Here's the story - it's from a picture of a curious ground squirrel, which I snapped on a recent campout. It was definitely not shy, and I took the picture as it was trying to get into a bag of trail mix in one of our tents (it later jumped up on the lap of another guy who was there, trying to get to his food). You can see the whole scene here: CuriousChipmunk.jpg (204 KB).
This reminds me of a very funny video that's been making its rounds, called "The Dramatic Chipmunk" - you can watch it below, or on go see it on YouTube. Funny stuff!
