Chipmunks carry out human activities like knitting in adorable snaps

SQUIRREL NITKINS

A WILD chipmunk looks like it’s taken up ­knitting, while another saws like a chippy, in these adorable shots.

Christie Pierce, 65, spends hours on her hobby of crafting backgrounds so the squirrel-like critters appear to be enjoying human activities.

She has also caught them looking like they are playing poker, reading, at a campsite — and even at the office in her garden in Washington DC.

Retired nurse Christie said: “We never imagined that we’d end up in this whole world of chipmunks and miniatures.

“I like to think that they’re doing every day human things and people really respond to that whole concept because it’s relatable.

“It really looks like they’re calmly doing what the image wants you to think they’re doing

“There’s a lot of tricks I learned with the types of food I give them, so I can get the magic moment where they’ve finished eating and they’re essentially posing like a human in the set.

Christie added: “It’s such a fun hobby because when you get the perfect shot, there’s nothing like it.

“The only limit is your imagination - there’s a lot that certain animals can do and chipmunks are the perfect specimen.

“It became great fun to tell these little stories with the chipmunks in just one shot.
