We went for a hike last April, when the snow finally let us back on the
and we rounded a curve and there was
THIS cute fellow!!!:
We hadn't seen many in the woods for years!:
Contrary to beliefs, they do NOT throw their quills...
they just "display" them to warn you:
But after a few minutes of me slowly following him, clicking away with my lens, he settled down and figured maybe I wasn't such a threat after all:
Or, maybe NOT! (I am sure he was thinking: why is she STILL following me?):
I'll just stop and give her my "model pose":
I think they have such cute faces!
He had enough of me, and headed to the deeper woods.....
I was so happy to have spent some time with him!
- The Retired One
- I retired in June 2008 and started my blog in November 2008. I worked at several jobs as a Registered Nurse prior to retirement. I LOVE being retired! Blogging has offered me a whole new venue to start writing again and to share new hobbies such as gardening, birdwatching and sharing my nature photography. If you like my blog, PLEASE click on "follow this blog". Having a lot of followers reading my blog gives me incentive to continue to do photography and to continue to write. I also LOVE comments, so I encourage you to leave me a comment after you read my posts. Thanks everyone, for taking the time to read me!!
