“The lines of the quills were perfect, forming a Fibonacci curl from the nose right to the end of the quill,” writes Your Shot member Heather Allen of this porcupine photographed on the Oregon coast.
“I just loved the light hitting the top quills, setting off its face.
The final [bit of] luck was that he lifted his head and looked right at me.”
Allen’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.
