A Handful of Dorian

Newer Older


Met up w/ Pyo today (fellow Utsunomiya shooter) and got to meet Dorian. Sassy lil feller. But then again, I've never met a hedgehog before, so maybe they're all sassy. Regardless, he's cute ;)

Utsunomiya, Tochigi pref., Japan

Made Explore for 23 November, 2009 (日).

My second shot to hit the Explore Front Page. Thanks, everyone!
