the Coyote

These are pretty long shots, but both Terry and I thought it was kind of cool.

In driving around the outer edge of the Bosque, there's a huge field leading to the mountains and we often see flocks of geese off in the distance.

Terry noticed a dark shape in the field and sure enough, there was a coyote, trying to sneak up on the flock. I wasn't quick enough for a shot as he was lurking, but I did get a couple of shots as he was regretting his lost lunch (look off to the far right of the shot).

Then he just sort of stood and watched them fly away.

It's such a treat
to be here
have all this nature
so close and available.
