Next up on my series of "5" Star Photos is one of my favorite animals to photograph: Skunks!
Yes, these little guys are one of nature's most beautiful. Absolutely gorgeous. They have very businesslike personalities. They are interested primarily in eating and their search for food is methodical. As long as you don't get too close -- or otherwise frighten them, you can spend as much time as you want photographing them. This photo was taken in the Galiuro Mountains of Southeast Arizona.
