Coyote Sunday in New Mexico


nature art for sale

I added some ham that went off to the compost pile knowing that the crows, ravens, magpies and scrub jays would show up.  It was a beautiful stormy winter day, so I washed the windows knowing I might get some good shots of the birds coming in.  Little did I know that calling her up would work, but it did:

coyote in the meadow, can you see her?

she can smell the ham

and the birds are making all kinds of racket

we could hear the birds making all kinds of racket

she didn't like them either

and would pounce at them

but all in jest she did find

ever vigilant while trying to snag the goodies

she snagged her prize

I hope you like our tv of the day.  this is how we entertain ourselves alot.

If any of these would look great on your wall just let me know and I’ll invoice you.

 

Hope your week is going well and getting better every day,

peace n abundance,

    Great shots. Great story! Quite a zoo you’re *running*… 😉 I discovered your coyote chronicle via the “Coyote Capers” post you included at the bottom of your posts. Great connection!

    thank you so very much. We do love our zoo of wild critters up here. We don’t have pets or farm critters just so we can enjoy the natural ones more. I’m glad you connected. I love to go check out the links I choose for the bottom of each post. So much more personal than wp picking them out. Thanks for the visit and the comment

    She looks healthy so she must be getting food somewhere. That is an awesome picture of her and the magpie. My favorites are the last picture where it looks like she’s smiling and the picture of the magpie flying where you can see the beauty of her feathers.

    Myrtle,
    Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. We have wild bunny’s all over the place here in northern New Mexico so I’m sure she’s not hurting in that department. I love those too. Have a wonderful week.
    peace n abundance,

    What fantastic photos! I’ve seen coyotes, but never a magpie, so that was a special addition. We hear coyotes here from time to time, and there’s a nature center not far from me that has water access, so it’s possible to find prints down there – deer, coyote, bobcat. Amazing, since we’re really “suburbs”.

    Your skills with that camera are good, too. Those are some amazing “action shots”. It’s interesting – one of the photographers I ran across takes pics of birds, and he says that getting wildlife photos is amazingly like his previous career as a sports photographer! It makes sense – lots of action, things moving quickly, and so on.

    Thanks so much for this series – it’s just wonderful.

    Linda, thank you so much for the compliments. Yes wildlife photography is very challenging, but when you actually get action like this it makes it all worth while. I was just after shots of the crows and magpies that morning, but when I had some off-ham to put out, I called out to her and she came. I love that idea of the animals that live around us are so aware of what we do that they are on it within minutes. She probably showed up within 10 minutes of me calling her up. She even beat the crows, they never had a chance. The magpies are incredible and I didn’t know you hadn’t ever seen one. I will have to post some more for you.
    Hope your weekend is fabulous.
