a nice capture of this porcupine. the colours are so wonderful and the sharpness is seen.
Well composed in good lighting and the pose is so tame.

une excellente photo du Porc-épic, un excellent POV frontale,
j'aime que tu n'a pas cadré sérré et laissé une espace à l'arrière
pour montrer une partie de l'eau, superbe focus netteté et détails
et quel beau regard visuel, TFS
A lovely image, indeed; however, your notes have a major problem.
They are "repeated" half way except the last paragraph.
This looks like a baby.
Warm regards from COLD Calgary, Alberta.

Excellent framed this one porcepine and top player. What interesting animals. I must confess that I have never seen such species so far. Thanks for the opportunity.

It too difficult to find and capture an "opening" parcupine. But you managed it as very succesfully. Bravo and TFS.

I have only seen porcupines in pictures and would love to see a live one. I love the pose showing off the numerous quills. Just wonderful in this natural setting.

Now this is a rare fellow to see in TN hehehe!
Interesting looks with the cute little face and the spines ready for self defence...
A well framed nature scene, sharp fine details!

I'm not sure how you actually distinguish between an old or a young porcupine. Definitively
not because it has some grey quills I suppose. Anyway, this guy was either having himself
a drink of water or playing in the mud. Do old porcupines still play in the mud (chuckle)? I
know old humans don't, but I am sure they probably sometimes wish they could. This is a
fine capture of the North American porcupine clearly showing why one should maintain a
healthy distance from this prickly chap. Those barbed quills sure would do a lot of damage
if you come too close and this chap suddenly turns around and pull a unexpected reverse
attack on you. The image shows good details and exposure management.
Good work MF and TFS.
Take care and have a great weekend.

Bonjour Jean-Paul !
Wow, quelle chance d'avoir pu approcher un porc-épic ! Ils sont vraiment jolis - un peu piquants peut-être :-) La photo est très réussie aussi, on y voit plein de détails intéressants, les couleurs sont naturelles, la composition est très agréable, et le POV frontal fonctionne bien. Félicitations !

A great close-up of this amazing animal not often seen here on TN. Excellent details, light and colours and a good background that makes it stand out.
TFS and regards, Ulla

A VERY interesting photo! It is so special to me, because in our area old animals are never seen. I assume because they get eaten when they slow down and never reach old age...
Therefore I wonder, where you have seen this animal?? Do they not have enemies in Canada?
You got incredibly close and with good focus show a lot of details: e.g. I notice that on its left side (right side of the imge)it has not quilts, only very short ones...
I want to be able to see this animal as often as I like and add it to my favorites.
Have a nice day,
Kind regards from South Africa
