cozy porcupine b&b
has a rather singular guest
Nuttall's cottontail ~ Sylvilagus nuttallii
a-k-a : mountain cottontail
rabbits and hares are known
for eating their own 'droppings'
above pictured rabbit
i snapped in a well known crevice
in fantastic #SaintVictorPetroglyphsProvincialPark -
Saskatchewan CANADA -
fancied too a nibble or few
of north american porcupine (Erethizon dorsatum)
which all in all
a fine and comfy bed
for the typically solitary lagomorph
earlier in spring -
almost in any given year -
turky vultures (Cathartes aura)
often nest in the crevice · · · · · · · · ·
never an empty space
in wide open prairie spaces
scanned from kodachrome diapositive 35mm slide original
~ circa 1980-something
this rendition is frightfully 'cool'
since i quite forgot to 'warm' it up
with color temperature correction ...
hope to fix it ...... hmmmm, somedayyyyy .........
