Autumn Leaves

The music played on
He listened
Well I watched
The leaves fluttered in the window
As if dancing along

The music played on
He listened
Well I watched
The leaves fluttered in the window
As if time flew by

The music played on
He listened
Well I watched
The leaves fluttered in the window
Time did not stop

The music played on
He listened
Well I watched
The leaves fluttered in the window
Soon all would be gone.

Video of a porcupine in the wild

Porcupine

When we were camping in Forillon National Park (Parc National Forillon) Gaspe, Quebec I came across a porcupine eating leaves. The video is somewhat long, but fascinating, especially about three-quarters of the way through when he/she stands to eat, you then get a good look at its face. You will note that I say to my husband something to the effect of get back it will shoot its quills. Hubby was getting too close, but no porcupines do not shoot quills. However, their quills are difficult to remove when you are pierced with one, they will grow new ones.
