Striped Skunk

Back in the day, I had one of these as a pet - de-perfumed! I love this shot. Sad about his eye, perhaps will heal on its own. Great find and capture.

As spring arrives, one is apt to see a Striped Skunk out roaming around almost anyplace. This one was relatively approachable, perhaps partly because one of its eyes is not good. Although I took this with a telephoto lens, I got quite close, but made sure the wind was blowing towards the skunk, just in case :-)
