Porcupine

I’m not sure why, but I love Porcupines. They are ornery and covered in quills but somehow I still find them charming. This particular porcupine is quite a character; he seems cool and nonchalant until you point a camera at him, then he hustles away indignantly. This weekend he was especially uncooperative with my photography effort, going so far as to earn the name “Sniper” because he climbed up an oak tree and shot me with acorns. Rude. Yesterday I finally wore him down and he actually sat still long enough for me to take some pictures. Although, I think you can tell from his expression that he isn’t particularly fond of me. Unrequited adoration:
