Coyote hunting

I watched this coyote hunt for 30-minutes or so. Unfortunately, every time it took the classic coyote dive onto prey its eyes were away.

 

It would gulp down it catches and then keep hunting. Finally the sun came out nice and I thought, "now I'll get it" and the coyote circled around three times, like a dog in its bed, then laid down for a nap. I thought that it might wake up to hunt again, but thirty-minutes later the sun was gone and it was still asleep, so I went home.

 

Below are some hunting shots, all facing away from the camera. Still, it's fun to see.
