Admittedly, this is not the best quality picture, but I didn't have much time to take it. We heard coyotes a few nights ago, the first time I've heard them since we moved in three years ago. This morning, I was sitting at the table, working on an article I have due today, when something out of the corner of my eye caught my attention. It's not uncommon to have dogs roaming free through the neighborhood, so at first I thought it had to be the neighborhood German Shepard. But, I hadn't noticed any black in its coat and it seemed shorter.
I stepped outside and saw two coyotes in the field just north of us. They saw me, too, and froze. For a while, the two stayed put, but as I ran inside to get my camera, one started to trot away. By the time I got back, I was only able to catch these fleeting shots of the second one. He was passing by our back fence line.
