Photo of the Day – more in the critters series

Prickly little dude

I suppose this is also part of the Oregon series as our little dude here is from the safe wildlife park as the emus. In this case, however, the shot is about portraiture more than wildlife photography. The porcupine is sleeping with head on hands, just like a person. This isn’t about anthropomorphizing our prickly little friend, but portraiture brings the viewer and subject together; we’re just animals together.
