About the author jmankowsky

This photo blog features the seasonal changes in nature observed in my own backyard and a variety of local environments. The Wachusett Meadow Audubon Sanctuary in Princeton, MA is often highlighted as a model for the positive effects a small nature preserve can have on the larger environment and the local community. Local sites of historical, cultural and recreational interest are spotlighted as well. All photographs were taken by me. Thank you so much for visiting.

    1. I think it’s wild too, Donna. l-) Porcupines amble along in a funny way, and it’s difficult to see their faces sometimes. They also hang out in trees, and sometimes you walk very near them without even noticing at first. Glad you enjoyed the pics!

    1. They were not recent, but the snow has come and gone since then. We’re looking at more snow Friday, though. 😉

    1. So, I recently realized that I somehow I am unfollowing people without knowing it. (Or maybe it’s a WordPress thing?) Anyway, I happened to come across your post and was so glad!
      Cheers,
      Julie

      1. Thanks Julie. That seems to be a common theme. Several other people have said the same thing about unintentional unfollowing. It also happened to me once. Is it WP or something else? I wish I knew! Very glad to see you again. : )

    1. I do love porcupines, Tanja. I have never seen babies, but a nature friend tells me they are called “porcupettes”. How cute is that!
