Gary Fairhead (from this site) and myself discovered these adorable baby skunks on a brief outing in search of various songbirds to photograph. We managed to back up on a path as the little guys decided to cross the path for a brief play session before disappearing into the long grass. I love it when the unexpected presents itself – especially when it is so cute :)
Canon EOS 7D 1/200s f/5.6 at 400.0mm iso640 on a Manfrotto 055x pro and Jobu Jr.3 gimbal head. Photographed in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Spending time in the outdoors has always been a passion of mine. Most of my subject matter is avian but I will readily spend hours photographing almost anything else in the natural world. Currently I live near a small town, Rockland, just east of Ottawa. I work in Ottawa and so most of my photography is done in eastern Ontario. Thank you for dropping by and enjoy.

    Trouble comes in threes but these guys were worth the trouble :-) Very nice Bill!

  • I certainly agree. I have also been back and have not seen a thing. I certainly agree with you as I’m sure these little guys are playing up a storm under the cover of night.

    Really like this one, you have captured their adventuous characters, great story.
    do you come across skunks very often?? this is my first finding on red bubble.

  • Thanks, John. I have only come across baby skunks a few times and this was the only time I had my camera with me as I was out shooting birds with a fellow photographer. Most skunks I come across are usually late at night when I am putting the trash out :)
