Really cool guy, I like Porcupines :)
I think you can fix his face in Photoshop so vi can see how he/she looks :)

What an unusual shot of a porcupine. Didn't know they climbed trees! I love the furry ball. Interesting picture - I like it.

Amazing close-up shot with interesting POV. I like play of sunlight into the animal hair. Very good esthetic effect. Your DOF is great as well as the details of the tree branches and reproduction of the sky. Difficult for shooting scene and excellent execution of the shot. My compliments and TFS.

Never heard of. I'm ashamed of myself:-).
I wonder how the sounds really; can't remember my crying:-)
Well done, Rick

I like your picture .Nice POV , I like the nice blue of the skie from your BG.
Looks like a fluffy ball of hair, Rick, with just a suggestion of the face. It does not seem to have those famous quills, though. Is it waiting for a fresh growth of them or what?
We have this animal in India too and I remember collecting some quills in the woods to play around with them.
Thanks for sharing the image.
I wouldn't like this creature falling on my head. Even if those quills don't seem too stiff, I wouldn't dare to approach it. Nevertheless he seems soooo cute! You did a wonderful capture, indeed, with excellent sharpness, colors and composition. I like it very much.
My compliments and TFS.

I'm impressed with the detail and exposure you managed for this difficult shot. You managed to make him almost look soft... but I am not fooled. Nice work.
Thanks for sharing
Evelynn : )
in this picture you have caught this "porky" well, as most of the pics I see of them lack detail (here on TN) of their faces.Are these critters shy or aggressive?I ask because in all the years I have been living here in Alberta I saw only one and it was not glad to see me in the slightest.I like the detail in this pic and the gnaw marks in the tree branch are a nice bonus.I hope that your porky friend doesn't meet up with any face eating Fishers(nasty way to go if you ask me).TFS.

Very well seen.Porcupines can be quite difficult to photograph.Very good POV and the freshly eaten bark on the tree limb is a very good addition.Well focused with sharp details.TFS

A very good shot on this Porcupine. This is how you see them so often. You did very well with the strong back lighting. Colors and detail in the quills is excellent. Nice shot!

I was wondering what this porcupine does on the tree. Your note explains it very well. Nice capture the POV is great. Excellent sharpness and the colors are great.

What a nice and strange looking creature. I wish I could see one in real someday :) Your notes will help me to identify if I have this chance. This animal looks so soft... I like the way the lightning hits it "fur" and this little light that you managed to caught in it eye. This is a beautiful picture with great subject :-) Thanks,
