Porcupine/Camera Critters

 Porcupine in a tree

We could see the porcupine from the road but I walked in to take this shot.

High up in the tree

It looks like a bird nest from afar, and what a fantastic closeup!

Great eyes! Love that close up.

It's high enough in that tree that you can't get too close, which is a good thing! Nice catch.

Sandra said...

You are full of surprises these days. I think I've seen porcupines in the wild in my youth, but am not sure and I surely have never seen one up in a tree! Fantastic photos! By the way, what's that spiny thing sticking out of your head?

VP said...

Great, I have never seen a real porcupine...

Lois Evensen said...

He needs a few more leaves to hide up there! Great images. Love it!

Strange critter. How does one hug a porcupine?

La Principessa Errante said...

I had no idea they would climb into trees. He is adorable, great shot, super capture.

I didn't even know that they could climb a tree! I always know I'm going to see something good when I come to your blog.

Randy said...

I had no idea that they could climb. Nice shot.

Judy @ daily yarns said...

I had no idea they could climb either. Love that top photo.

RedPat said...

I don't think I have ever seen one!

Kathy said...

I certainly had no idea that porcupines hung out in trees! Another example of how blogging makes me smart!

Malyss said...

You have good eyes! i thought it was a nest! i'm glad you pictured it so near, it's cute!

Great shot of the porcupine! I've never seen one "live".

I've never seen one in a tree before. I find them rather cute. :)

edenhills said...

Well, that's not something you see every day. I didn't even know they could climb a tree. You must live in a wild area with all the different critters you find.

Stephanie said...

I did not know that they can go up in trees. Very cool that you spotted the porcupine.

Crafty Green Poet said...

Great photo of the porcupine. They're such strange critters. We see them in cottonwood trees near the Green River.

Rose said...

I hate to admit this...but I didn't realize they climbed trees.

Pia said...

Oh wow what an amazing animal! I just know them from the zoo, can´t imagine to have them hang in the trees around. Thats great!
