Nice shot and so very lucky for you.

Thank you Clifford, always very appreciated. The tricky part was handling my camera with a headstrong dog pulling on the leash.

Cool capture Heather. Very nice focus on the little skunk. That must have been a little tricky. In expand mode you can see the eyes nicely. Nice detail and tones. Sure glad you and your dog were not bothered. It must have been a little tense when you first spotted him. Good shooting.

Thank you Debra, always much appreciated. Needless I was pretty concerned about what could have happened at the time. Just thankful they were both too busy to notice one another and that I could get a few photos :)

Whoops.. Meant to say 'needless to say..'

My dog and I came close to tripping over this young skunk on one of our walks last summer. Fortunately she had other interests in mind at the time and the skunk was too preoccupied with the mouse he had caught to be very bothered by our presence.
