I am not a professional photographer or a nature specialist but I am a very curious person especially when it comes to the world around me. I now live in the Northwoods were nature really is all around you. My Goal this summer is to see my first wolf!

The porcupine is the prickliest of rodents, though its Latin name means
"quill pig." There are about two dozen porcupine species, and all boast a
coat of needle-like quills to give predators a sharp reminder that this
animal is no easy meal. Some quills, like those of Africa's crested
porcupine, are nearly a foot (30 centimeters) long.
