This guy looks a little better fed than Wile E. I’ve heard coyotes in the neighborhood before as I’ve been out taking pictures; but this was the first time I spotted on and had my camera with me. (Sadly, I had switched from my 300mm to my 200mm lens before I left, but at least I got these).
He saw me and decided he’d rather not hang about; the first photo is one after he’d run down the tracks a bit and turned to see if he was being followed (he wasn’t). He scarpered:
But ultimately, whatever he was after was too big a draw and he came back, blending in with the tall grass…
… and driving some neighborhood dogs crazy.
