Confrontational Skunk

Not much happened on the trap line this past week, so I pulled a few cams and will find new sets soon. This skunk with attitude is the best I can offer. It's a full frame picture, and obviously it reacted to either a previous flash or perhaps the sound of the lens extending. I've seen this stand-off posture in other photos. This should suffice to warn any savvy predator about imminent danger. The next step is an about-face, at which point the stubborn predator is face-to-face with the weapon of musk destruction.
