This Week on Our Homestead - Mr. Coyote




“Coyotes move within a landscape of attentiveness. I have seen their eyes in the creosote bushes and among mesquite trees. They have watched me. And all the times that I saw no eyes, that I kept walking and never knew,
there were still coyotes.
 
 
 
 
 
 
"When I have seen them trot away,
when I have stepped from the floorboard of my truck, leaned on the door,
and watched them as they watched me
over their shoulders,
 
 
 
 
"I have been aware for that moment
of how much more there is.
Of how I have only seen only an instant
of a broad and rich life.”

    1. This one was particularly pretty. I'm happy to photograph from a distance, however.

  4. Fantastic photos! You were lucky to get these shots. Coyotes around here are fast and elusive.

    1. Anne, I've never been able to catch a shot of a coyote like this until now. They never sit still like this one. Highly unusual.

    1. Hard to believe that's one coyote, isn't it? He (or she) cooperated very well with my picture taking. Have a great weekend, Jeanette Ann.
