Steven Berkowitz placed first in Pets with an amazing photo of a chipmunk

Dr. Steven Berkowitz of Kirkwood, Pa., a veterinarian with Unionville Equine has often been a winner in Pets in the Photo Contest, but this year he outdid himself with this shot of a chipmunk jumping a fence Berkowitz had constructed.

"This is a chipmunk at my house," said Berkowitz. "I trained him to jump over these sticks with peanuts. It was a fun project, and it actually only took a couple of days to teach him. First, I just had him on a log, and then I put these sticks together with rubber bands, and I got some photos of Mr. Peanuts from the internet."

Berkowitz, who uses an Olympus camera, also placed fourth with a photo of a fox trotting past a sign pointing towards the hen house.

"I saw this vixen pretty regularly, and she always took the same route in the mornings, so I just put up the sign and waited for her to trot by," said Berkowitz.

That photo will be posted when Pets photos go up in March.
