Porcupine up close


And no, it wasn't chewing on the tree. Had this camera set for a beaver to finish falling the tree when this Porky decided to wander by, got 4 pictures of it passing through. They can run if they choose but most of the time they waddle down the trails rather slowly.

While he's not bad at tree demolition, he must have been awed by the beaver's handwork.

Very nice picture.

I noticed on the backside of the tree a note requesting the beavers to fall a few young fir trees so it wouldn't have to climb to eat the tender bark.

In reality, I still get amazed at the balance of nature in the real world.

Cute photo. Before I read your post I was wondering if we had a new kind of porcupine who naws trees. :-)
Have a wonderful weekend.
