Talk about excitement all around!
Earlier this morning I was sitting on the couch doing my normal morning bit of checking email and drinking coffee. I sit so I can see out my living room windows, I like to look up and see birds hopping around, the sun hitting the trees, and look at the fields. While doing that something caught my eye. At first I thought my dog was outside, then I realized it was rather shaggy and had erect ears.
Quite suddenly it dawned on me that at coyote was running through my yard!
I ran to the kitchen and grabbed my camera, that was thankfully equipped with the 200mm lens instead of the smaller one (was taking photos of young woodpeckers yesterday) I snapped a couple shots of the coyote as he was heading off to the back woods. It was really neat to see but freaky at the same time. Last year a dog was killed a few houses down by coyotes. I was really happy my dog had just come in, because she would have run up to check it out or chase it off.
