After a walk through the river bottom in Lethbridge, we spotted this porcupine sleeping in a cottonwood tree.
adjusted curves, no crop, downsized for TN.

Hello Otto,
remarkable member of Canadian wildlife, well spotted, well captured in beautiful light, well shown with clear details. Thank you!
Best regards,

Good for you for finding this animal. Most would not realize what it is. When you know what you are looking for, the river valley comes alive.
