The coyote who got away

Picture this: leaping, cavorting coyote hunting amid tall grasses. Picture this: photographer pulls over to take exciting photo. Picture what you see: coyote runs away. Sigh...

About Kathy

I live in the middle of the woods in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Next to Lake Superior's cold shores. I love to blog.

    Very nice, almost ghostly shot of coyote in vegetation almost to match. Like some wild animal glimpsed from afar across an African savannah.

    We heard one so close last evening that David and stared at each other wide-eyed. Sarah the Unflappable went right on nonchalantly munching a blade of grass as if nothing was going on.

    Ahh, it’s so cute! There is something intriguing about wild animals.

    Even the glimpse is a treat.

  5. At least the animal is visible in your picture. On two occasions I didn’t even get that much one day four weeks ago:

    Your photo matches their bewitching howls and yaps very well.

    I have never seen a coyote not even in a zoo – so this is exciting although a hard look is necessary!
    I have put your blog on my favourite list so take a look at mine if you have time.

    Usually it’s people who run away (or make silly faces when they can’t) when trying to take a photo of them.

  10. We have lots of coyotes out here. I hear them more often than I see them, though. I didn’t realize they lived up there!

    Why the sigh? I think it’s a beautiful shot, and captures coyote so well. 🙂

    Kathy, I’m smiling here. And picturing what you described. Quite vividly! You just can’t keep a great story teller down for long 🙂
