Eastern Coyote: for Camera Critters
January 24, 2007, was my lucky day for I saw a handsome Eastern Coyote! I had been driving along the main highway and decided to check out a side road, which had open fields on both sides, thinking that I might possibly see some Snowbirds feeding there. Suddenly I saw movement to the left and, as I was braking and grabbing for my camera, a Coyote stopped abruptly, quickly turned direction, and headed for the woods bordering the field. After my first burst of pictures, I rolled down my car window just as it had reached the woods edge. Upon reaching relative safety it stopped momen -tarily to take a good look at me while I was taking several good photographic looks at it! What a beautiful sight it made through my camera lens! After watching my car for a few seconds it turned and loped off into the woods. Unlike a dog or a wolf, a Coyote runs with its tail pointed down and this was easily observed as it ran from view.
