Those quills don't look so menacing now. He just looks really fluffy. What a nice adventure, and nice photos to remember it by. I love the stand of trees he is in, too.

Cool shots. We don't get porkys in this area. The closest I've seen one is almost 250 miles north of here. Thanks for sharing.

He does look cute and fluffy! I'll keep my distance just in case though. Nice pics. Sounds like a fun adventure!

Nice ones, Sue. I don't think I'm gonna pet him, even though he looks kinda soft. smile

Thanks for posting these cool pics. Porcupines hold a soft spot in my heart. I spent a day a week my junior and senior years of high school studying them through a DNR program. I don't know if it was the relative freedom, being out in the woods, or just being 17 years old, but those were some of the most enjoyable days of my life. I reached in many a porky den donning welding gloves grin .

I love porcupines, and I love the look the subject gives you in the second image. Excellent series.
