Nice Doggy…

Coyote

Well, this was a surprise!  While walking back from the back pond area of Vassar Farm, I saw what appeared to be a dog coming towards me on the trail.  Once I got just far enough up the hill to catch a decent look, I realized there was no one with it.  Then it hit me, I was staring at a coyote!

As we were both staring at each other from about 40 feet away, I made the first move and tried to get a photo.  The coyote then turned and trotted into the tall grass and I never saw it again.  Thankfully, quick reflexes allowed me this shot, even though the road is in the way.  What an experience!

    I was just about to say that I felt bad for the “doggy” since he probably got out of someone’s home during the storm.

    Then I saw “coyote”…… Nevermind 🙂

  2. I love coyotes–much maligned and misunderstood!
