Sunrise. January 1, 2021.

I had a different post planned for tonight, but things got in the way. Happy New Year!

  1. Other things getting in the way, that tells you the timekeeper is still at work. The blonde porcupine haven’t seen one of those before.

    • It’s been around. I posted photos of it a couple of years ago. I hadn’t seen it for quite a while. A porcupine crawled up on the bank right next to me when I was photographing the cranes before sunrise the other morning. Thanks, David.

    • Thanks, Teagan. I’m happy you liked it. I’m posting new music tonight. BTW I just retrieved your comment from spam. That’s why I’m replying so late.

    • Thanks, aveRAGE. It’s a really a cute porcupine and the only Blonde porcupine I’ve seen.

  2. The sky in the 1st and 3rd photos is magnificent! And that porcupine has that perfectly tousled, frosted blonde styling many women have tried to emulate πŸ˜‰ You can look, but you’d better not touch!

  3. Wonderful captures, Timothy. What a gorgeous NYD sunset. The seagull looks to be on a serious mission. The porcupine is so cute and looks really relaxed. We have lots of eagles hovering around here, but I’m rubbish at photographing birds in flight. Happy 2021. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Sylvia. The seagulls were on the move. circling on thremals to gain height and flying south. The porcupines are really cute. Especially the way they waddle when the walk.

  4. These shots make me want all the more to travel and see these in true life – which will never happen. So thanks for bringing them into my little flat, Sir!

      • Yes indeed mate, it is.
        It only seem a few months ago that I had two cars, went on fishing hiolidays, travelled all over the country on fishing holidays with my mates (all gone now), but of course, it was in reality so many years ago.
        Still, the memories do not depress me at all, I loved getting out and about, shame we didn’t take more photographs at the time.

        Noe all I can take is photos of the flat and views from the window. Humph!

        Keep safe all of you!

  5. Beautiful clicks Tim……you are very good at what you do….always lovely to stop by and see what you’ve been up to…..have a creative year ahead….🀩🍭🀩🀩🀩🀩🀩🍭🀩🀩🀩🀩🍭🀩🀩🀩🀩

      • Did I miss the pic of the black porcupine?
        I was under the weather for a week, now I’m beside the weather.
        I have a few back porcupine names in mind. I’m thinking Jacquie, but I’d like to see how long the quills are first.

      • I wonder if Billy and Farrah will have little punk porcupines?
        I saw 2 porcupines at the zoo when I was about 10. I was traumatized by seeing them in their cage. One was busy building a dam in the cement pool with wood put there by people. The other was looking through the bars, like a prisoner looking out at freedom.
        I’ve never gone to a zoo since.
        I know they have better environments for animals now, and that many are endangered, so they are being preserved.
        However, at that time in Winnipeg, the zoo cages were mingy, and I did see it as a prison for animals.

      • They do get together and we see little Punkupines. The little ones are super adorable.

        Our zoo was like when I was 10, but then they made a great transformation to more natural enclosures and expanded into a bio park, so it is much better.
