Waiting

"Coyote is always out there waiting, and Coyote is always hungry." ~ Navajo Proverb

 

On this particular day, we were treated to numerous coyote sightings, three of which just happened to be near the elk carcass which I posted previously. Coyote #1 was on the carcass when we arrived but exited rather quickly when coyote #2 showed up. Coyote #2 quickly staked his claim and wasn't giving it up for anything. And then in saunters Coyote #3 (image above) who patiently waited near the side of the road for quite some time before heading towards the carcass. In this particular frame, he was weaving in & out of the willows, trying to be sneaky so Coyote #2 didn't see him approaching. He never did make it over to the carcass while we were watching....so much patience, which can teach some of us humans a lot :-)

 

Hope everyone has a great weekend....home today with a stomach bug of some sort that will hopefully go away soon. Thanks for all your visits & comments!!!!
