    Porcupine (and a flying rat)

    This might be the same porcupine I got pictures of last year up in a tree 100-200 yards from the tree I saw it in yesterday.. only have the 70-300, and with lots of tree limbs

    Last year's shot's, less trouble with tree limbs but underexposed the dark body

    Yesterdays' shots.. I purposely blew out the trees and sky a bit remembering last year's dark shots, I really should carry a flash in my pocket and/or get a better beamer to put on that flash for these types of shots.

    Funny that I had a bunch of people stop along the trail and to see what I was aiming at with the camera, when usually they just keep walking.

    The flying rat I mentioned also
    EOS 7D, Canon 24-70F2.8, Sigma 70-200 F2.8 (with or without 1.4 Extender), and posting photos on my website:

    Nice job, I keep an eye out for these fellows but so far haven't gotten a shot at one.
