They're everywhere lately. Is it because the weather FINALLY got cooler? Is it breeding season for coyotes? They're very active, and all over the place. You have no idea how many times I've tried to get pictures of them.....they vanish into the brush before I turn on the camera. The picture above is borrowed from Google Images.
They are wary of me, lurking and watching them, but they almost always stop, turn and look at me.
