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."
