45 Degrees, SUN!!
We often hear the coyotes at night. Sometimes close and sometimes far away, but this week they've been in our garden. The yipping and howling has been frightenly eerie and loud. Maybe the cold weather has prompted a new daily routine of checking on our livestock and household pets. We are on lock-down. Nobody goes outside unattended, chickens and rabbits are staying in their respective homes. The goats watch wearily - but I think that they are safe.
I took this picture frantically before he could disappear into the woods, with our younger son yelling and our Australian Shepard bouncing from window to window - so it's lacking. Of course the flash went off and the telephoto distorts the size - BUT, finally, I got a picture. I've been watching and waiting for a week. Often the female, who is much more petite, is with him. They were amazingly beautiful against the snow. Now they are much more camouflaged.
Although it's scary it's been exciting to see these animals in the daylight and upclose.
