a Porcupine in a Tree

On Tuesday we went to the Irving Nature Park in Saint John . We decided to go for a walk on the boardwalk and as we started to leave the parking lot we noticed some people with a camera and they were excited about what they were seeing. We

looked also and immediately Saw what was causing all of the excitement! There was a Porcupine in a Mountain Ash tree there which was loaded with beautiful red berries./ The Porcupine was eating the berries! The porcupine was savouring the berries!
When it finished the bunch of berries it had been eating it reached for more.
I continued to take its pictures as we observed it in the tree. The pictures reveal some of the characteristics of the porcupine; such as its colourful orange teeth, it short, stubby nose and its claws.
