I met them just this week.
Porky the baby porcupine was a serendipitous sighting. He (I assume) was going in circle in the snow, apparently lost or disoriented. Poor guy, I wanted to go up there and give him a big hug but restrained myself. Instead, got these sequences of shots.
Porky from afar. See the circling tracks? They are all Porky’s:
A bit closer in:
So cute and cuddly:
Don’t you want to give him a big hug too?
As for Wess the weasel, we’ve been waiting for her appearance for days like paparazzi. Some set up their huge telephoto lens on tripod and stood in the cold for hours. Our perseverance were rewarded with a quick dash of a photo shoot:
Wess the weasel poking out of her hole:
Donning her designer fur coat. See her long, black-tipped tail? No wonder she’s officially called the Long-tailed Weasel.
Dashing through the snow:
And here are the shots that make us weasel waiters feel all worthwhile. Wess posing for us in her professional style on the white carpet:
There they are, Porky and Wess, warming every heart in the cold of day.
