    This was a first! I had never seen a porcupine before....thought it was some sort of sloth when my hubby and I were taking the pics...i mean, who ever heard of porcupines being in the middle of an apple tree? hahahahahaha! I never have!!!

    It wasn't untill i got home and looked it up on the computer did i find out it was a porcupine!!!!

    Another cool experience!

    Porcupines are basically arborial.

    I wasn't aware they were fond of apples though.

    I didn't know they could climb trees. That's amazing.

    i didn't either!

    and this little porcupine, couldn't give two hoots that we were right there taking pics, as close as 6 feet at some points....all he could do was eat those apples, like they had some drug in them, that he couldn't get enough of....

    it was lovely....

    Looks like a scene from 'Over The Hedge'!

    Thanks!
