Tuesday I posted the photograph of this Porcupine taken when it reached the bottom of the tree while fleeing me and my camera. As the Porcupine climbed the tree it attempted to stay out of sight by staying on the opposite side of the tree. I circled the tree attempting to capture more photographs and of course the porcupine did the same.
Finally, finding a perch that apparently satisfied its need for safety the Porcupine allowed me to continue my photo session. Shortly after shooting this photo I walked away, allowing the porcupine to continue doing whatever that Porcupines do.

He is so cute!
I've never seen one in person. It looks soft and hardly harmful - not anything like I imagined.
Great photo - glad you were persistent!
I didnt' realize how funny looking porcupines looked! hehe!
I like this photo too. I saw the other one and thought it was special.
What do porcupines do?
I've never actually seen one, so thanks for sharing.
I Beati's "sharing the love" post recommended a visit. Am laughing at your narrative. Can imagine the cat and mouse game you were playing together. And in the end, came up with a beautiful photo. It was nice meeting you. Have a wonderful weekend. Petra
Salty: Nicely done, sometimes you have to work for the perfect shot.
If a porcupine can be cute, this one is cute. Nice picture.
This is ultra cool. xpression the photo has everything loved this !! sandy
What a cool photo! I had no idea porcupines could climb. I don't think I've ever run across one before. Very nice picture!
Hi Salty! Great picture. And what an adorable porcupine. I didn't know that they could climb. Lisa
I really like this shot. I never realized they could climb. Just goes to show you really do learn something new everyday.
I like it. Very nice Dad.
I really like this photo. I've never seen one up in a tree.
Great shot! Those are the critters that ate off part of our boat when we were island camping!
Oh my gosh - it is SO cute! I've never seen a one in real life before. You wouldn't expect them to be so cute, especially since they can be so painful ;-)
This is a truly fantastic shot!
Most of the porcupines I see are dead on the road. Its nice to see one a little more active :)
I heard from the grapevine that the little guy in the tree is really a porcupine model. He gets paid big bucks for posing. Be prepared to share the royalties from your photos, Salty.
BTW: I left you a 2008 Award at my sight, accept it if you wish.
What a prickly topic for today's Camera Critter! How nice to be able to get such a clear photo!
He/She is beautiful! And Beautifully captured!! I didn't realize those prickley critters climb trees!:)
Have a great week!
Oh, he does look adorable. What a fabulous shot!! I am reminded of a stuffed animal when I see this....but I'm sure he isn't as soft :)
Love the photo. I'm sure s/he appreciated the photo session being over, however. Glad s/he put up with it while it lasted!
