Photography: Wily Coyote in the Backyard………

SwittersB & Fly Fishing. Well, admittedly I have not been wetting a line of late. Soon, but in the meantime I am catching and releasing, so to speak, other beautiful creatures. This morning, my wife (hmm? shrieked? or loudly exclaimed) let me know there was something unusual in our backyard. I moved toward the window to see a coyote hopping about the backyard as if playing or stalking, almost like a cat does.

I grabbed the camera. Slid out the back door, careful to not let a our dogs or cats out to complicate the moment. I saw the coyote nearby. Focused upon me but not skittish. The coyote moved, stopped, looked, moved toward the escape route. I snapped away and caught something after all.

We have had coyotes for the 16+ years we have lived here. We live on the edge of development and undeveloped farm land and wetlands. I have never been able to capture one before. Today was a good day. Heck, this week was a good week: a bat and a coyote! In Portlandia!

Coyote v. Car (The Only Good Coyote is a Dead….Well Now Wait One Minute…or 8 Hours)

“Meet the wiliest of all coyotes: Hit by a car at 75mph, embedded in the fender,road for 600 miles – and SURVIVED! When a brother and sister struck a coyote at 75mph they assumed they had killed the animal and drove on. They didn’t realize this was the toughest creature ever to survive a hit-and-run. Eight hours, two fuel stops, and 600 miles later they found the wild animal embedded in their front fender – and very much alive.

Daniel and Tevyn East were driving at night along Interstate 80 near the Nevada-Utah border when they noticed a pack of coyotes near the roadside on October 12. When one of the animals ran in front of the car, the impact sounded fatal so the siblings thought there no point in stopping. ‘Right off the bat, we knew it was bad,’ Daniel explained. ‘We thought the story was over.’ “

No, I am not touchy feely about varmints, but I do have to give this one the animal survival award for this year. And, for those that are quick to remark on your favorite varmint round, this is pretty impressive….give the dog his due.
