Us old hippies used to get the quills by tossing a blanket over them...and let them run off......my last wilderness dog was killed by one...it got hurt so bad that the same night it was hurting, it met a coyote that was its match..It came home lay down and passed....sad story for a 5 year stint in the worst of it...but such is life in the wilds...great story and memory!

Nice to see You here again now with this lovely and fine photo of a Porcupine walkin in the snow.
You did such a great work here, the Low POW and sharpnes cant be better. The light and the BG is also in high level.
Like the Bob's story too.
say Hi to Lucy for me Ok.

Nice portrait of this uncommon animal (for me!) taken from a very good POV, in its natural habitat. Must be difficult for him to find food in the snow (only bark of trees as you write).
Do you shot in RAW? If well, it can be easy to correct the white balance with the DPP programm, in one click (to have the snow white). Except that minor thing, your photo is perfect! TFS and all the best,

Best regards Siggi

wow....what a nice capture of this guy. Smeared with snow and exciting sharp pricks.
The dark shiny eye is so lovely to be seen against the snowy white view.
Good day Rick, an interesting presentation of truly lovely Common Porcupine! What an adorable creature indeed. Seems that you have been quite close to that beauty. Wow! Bravo! Good detail, fine point of view and moderate sharpness. The only think which can be easily corrected is the heavy blue/cyan cast due to the incorrect white balance. In Snow I would suggest you to set the color temperature of your camera above K6000. Thanks for sharing this beauty and have a wonderful day!

A lovely view of this Porcupine that's lucky to have the long quills that keep the snow and enemies at a distance! Good focus on the eye and fine details against a natural background.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
