ImageI saw this guy at Cape Disappointment. He was dining by the side of the road. Even though I stopped the truck, rolled down the window, fumbled for my camera, and started talking to him, he was completely unperturbed by my presence. He must know he’s living in a protected environment, or he sensed the vibes of my vegetarianism. One of the two. ImageAnd a bonus shot! This is a porcupine butt. The porcupine was not impressed by the vibes of my vegetarianism and offered me a view of its prickly posterior in response to my desire to immortalize it on film. Image

    OMG! You saw a porcupine!!! How wonderful. First one, or have you seen them before? I’ve only seen them in the zoo, but one was up close in a keeper talk.

    • I actually saw that one two days in a row. Neither time was it happy to see me, and it waddled off into the underbrush in indignation. I saw an even bigger one in Chehalis once. As long as my dog is on a leash, porcupines are very exciting to see.

    Wow! Porcupines are not often see. I absolutely love your shots of the deer!!!

    A fun and funny post! The deer is beautiful and must be a young buck with that fuzzy rack. You certainly didn’t frighten him. The porcupine – well, you wouldn’t want to get too close to it – they can get rather prickly, whether you’re vegetarian or not! 🙂

    Re the horses: They live in our area, about 1/2 mile distant. We have several smaller horse farms nearby.

  4. Lovely shot of the deer. He appears to be quite interested in you.

    Beautiful animal, shame the porcupine was rather unimpressed though!
