200-500 Spies a Porcupine!
20

Yesterday evening while driving home, I spotted what appeared to be a "large cat" in the upper branches of a tree.

When I pulled over and got out to coax the animal down, I realized this was no cat. I wasn't sure what it was so, I drove home, got my camera and came back to make some photos. While there, several drivers stopped to inquire what I was photographing. One gentleman got out to see for himself and quickly identified the animal as a porcupine.

Here, are some of the photos I made. I've seen porcupines once or twice in the wild, but they were on the ground with quills more prominently on display.
