"THE EAGLE & THE LION"

American Bald Eagle (Adult) & Porcupine - 9 Photos

 

Caught an American Bald Eagle (Photo #1 & Photo #2) and shortly thereafter a porcupine on an afternoon outing. 

 

The position of the porcupine in Photo #3 (the first of the porcupine series) reminded me so much of a male lion lying beneath the setting sun - hence the title.

 

Photos #4 through Photo #9 were taken previously and have entitled this series "Shakin All Over". I managed to catch the quilly creature while he shook out his coat & quills. A video would probably have done more justice but the whole process is literally a few seconds. It does, however, provide some interesting posturing from the porcupine.

 

And, of course, there's that really lovely thick furry face. Does Nature know something we don't about the coming Winter??

Wonderful captures, Susan!
I just love how the lazy bones started moving, I wish I stayed a bit longer. Luckily I saw a weasel a bit later, where I've met you lately. I guess all these voles are tempting to the "speeding bullet" :)
You've captured both eagle and porcupine beautifully.
