Yesterday while on a drive with a friend, I noticed this skunk along the roadside.
Always wanting to add to my animal photos collection, I risked getting a new free blast of deodorant ' Eau de Skunk '.
I'm always careful when approaching any wild animal and tend to move very slowly , and in the case of these particular critters, never directly towards them.
I got behind a hill where he couldn't see me, and remained about 15 ft away, firing off 4 quick shots before he scuttled off, giving me a little glance, not really bothered by my presence.
