Went out today to see if we could spot owls but they were elusive.
There was a dark lump in the far distance way across a field so I snapped a few shots and what to our wondering eyes do we see... a porcupine.

We saw two porcupine in different areas and both were way out in the middle of a field. Amazingly they move at a pretty steady pace which surprised me as this is the first time I have watched one out in the open. Now I don't have a fantastic love of rodents though I do find porcupines ironically adorable.
