On to the Porcupine. Actually, it is called the "Common Porcupine," which to me is a misnomer. Common to me suggests "easily found and seen." Hardly! In all my travels and time in the wilderness both fly fishing and photographing, I have come across maybe five porcupines in total.
I am happy that at least one of those times I got a decent photo. This Porcupine was sitting in a tree near Dry Falls Lake in Washington where I was fly fishing. The green background let the animal stand out clearly creating a "5" Star Photo. (Although, the photo quality has deteriorated significantly since 1988):
