I've never seen (or smelt) a skunk in real life, but I wouldn't want to disturb one either.

Oh ya.....stinky poo!!! [I remember once, when I was a youngster, my dad hit one while driving on a country road...it survived - at least it continued across the road as we drove on]....but oh the car stunk and made us all quite nauseated]

But all in all, such a sweet looking bunch of photos.

Just wanted to say Good Morning! And ewwwww to the skunk!

Walk quietly? How about "run madly" in the opposite direction? I think I'm more afraid of these than tigers....tho' I've not seen any Tigers in my yard lately. Brave capture.

I've always found skunks fascinating or should I say stories about them, can't imagine what the smell is like! Very well captured Linda.

Good advice. A fine series of this pretty but not-too-liked critter.

Sam and I occasionally see one of these sniffing around in one of these in our yard or a neighbor's yard in the early morning. We stay clear of them! I do think they're kinda cute though (in a stinky kind of way.....!).

Gosh, going by the comments the sweet, cute looking ol' skunk really must have an odour!!! I mostly remember skunks featured in cartoons of yesteryear (wasn't there a French one?) They sure are pretty though Linda!

The James' in Dendron (Norman, Billy, Milton, Selinda, Lena & Eddie) had a skunk named (drumroll) Stinky. I believe it's scent sac had been removed.
