My computer situation has gone from bad to worse. I am now working off of my husband's laptop, which is too tiny and delicate for my clumbsy fingers. I hate technology! No I don't, not really, because without it I wouldn't be able to have so much fun with my camera and computer (when it works!) I spotted this coyote as it ran across the street by the shooting range where it's kit was waiting. There was a male and a second kit as well but this was as close as they would let me get. (I thought these were a type of fox but my husband identified them as a young family of coyotes, possibly looking extra scrawny because of the season)
I startled a doe from the thicket next to the pond where my kids were fishing so I took a peek to see where she had run off to. I had to stop almost as soon as I stepped into the meadow for about 50 yards away I spotted two little pointed ears sticking out from the thistle. The fawn instinctively froze in place and didn't even wiggle an ear, I almost didn't see it, but it was watching me the whole time. When I took one step too close and invaded its safety zone, it jumped up and in the direction the doe had gone, but stopped a little ways out and watched me watching it.
