A Porcupine!

When is a woodpile also a home? When a porcupine takes up residence during the day! We were up in Crosslake, MN for the President’s Day holiday weekend, and a winter cabin demands a winter fire. As we cleared away some snow to open the shed to get some wood, a shadowy creature stirred… Slowly. It was a porcupine! I’ve never been so close to a porcupine. In fact, I’ve only seen one other in my life and that was way up a tree. This one barely moved away from us, and very slowly. On day two, I took this shot with my iPhone. Cute little guy, or, girl maybe?

About scott

I live in Minneapolis Minnesota and have a passion for making portraits with view cameras and large format black and white film. In the last ten years, I have been drawn to older film cameras and large film formats up to 8x10 inch negatives. I also spend a fair amount of time perfecting recipes for home-made pizza and vegetarian soup. When not engaged in the aforementioned pursuits, I think about which mountain I will hike next.
