While out for a drive yesterday, hoping to photograph some wildlife, we only met with one willing participant. I suppose I should say indifferent because that is exactly what a porcupine is like. You are lucky if he so much as glances at you, and forget about a second glance. This little guy just went about his business as though I was not even there.
We also saw several ravens, but as soon as we pulled over, they would fly off. I spotted an absolutely beautiful coyote, but he was also extremely shy. I didn't even have time to get a shot of his backside. Normally, we see deer on every drive, but they too seemed to know I had my camera with me this time.
Oh well, it's actually not that often that we get to see a porcupine alive. Sadly, all too often, they are dead on the side of the road. They don't move all that quickly, the poor things. So I had a lot of fun just observing this little guy for a while. I've named him Pete...
These photos are too unusual not to share, so I'm going to join in fun over at Eileen's blog for Saturday's Critters...Have a happy Saturday everyone.
