Sharing moments in time…

Prickly Tuesday


While in Alaska this summer we were waiting for a bear to come across the field toward us when we saw this small dark animal moving about 100 yards away.  We decided to go investigate and we found this very nice porcupine wandering through the high grass.  I had never seen one before in the wild.  He was kind of hard to get a photo of as he kept ducking into the grass and facing in all the wrong directions.  I finally did get one decent shot of him with his face toward me and with his claws exposed.  Hope you enjoy this rare sighting (at least for me).

    • Thanks Leya – they are elusive little guys and very shy. We just found him by accident!
