[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
During winter porcupines do not hibernate. However, they don’t move far and feed within 100 m of their den. When the weather is dry in winter they will feed at any time of the day. Porcupines are slow and deliberate feeders, relying on their nose rather than their eyes to guide their selection of plants. Being shortsighted and slow moving, the porcupine is not too difficult to approach once found. This one was rather benign and let me take about one dozen pictures of him without any signs of frustration. Here's another picture of him that shows a little furry face:)

Hello Hanna,
I never had this chance to see this animal for "real". I wish I can someday as I think that they are so pretty. This is a nice capture of this one with nice composition. I wish that we could see its eyes but I know that it is something that might not be easy. Well seen and thanks,

Very good picture.
