Porcupine Quills

This is a close-up of porcupine quills. I love to take close-ups especially of animals.

According to National Geographic, “Porcupines have soft hair, but on their back, sides, and tail it is usually mixed with sharp quills. … Porcupines cannot shoot them at predators as once thought, but the quills do detach easily when touched. Many animals come away from a porcupine encounter with quills protruding from their own snouts or bodies.”

Upward Growth

Upward Growth

I love the way the ivy is crawling and creeping up this tree. I love the way it has tendrils that move up at its own pace. It is growing upwards and onwards to heaven above and the sun and the sky.

According to Wikipedia, “On level ground they remain creeping, not exceeding 5–20 cm height, but on suitable surfaces for climbing, including trees, natural rock outcrops or man-made structures such as quarry rock faces or built masonry and wooden structures, they can climb to at least 30 m above the ground.”

These are beautiful ladybugs with rich red, orange and yellow colourings with those adorable black spots.  I look at this photo that I took and it almost looks like a snake’s head reaching upwards being covered by the ladybugs.  It is, in fact, only a unique looking branch that is covered with ladybugs not only on the top, but the sides and even underneath.  How do they do that?  It looks as if by reaching the end of the branch, they will reach something or someone special.  I hope they do.
