Death Valley Coyotes

One of the best parts of our January trip was a close-up coyote sighting. At first it was a bit creepy. We saw the first coyote on the side of the road; Bob got out of the car to look, and another one came sidling up behind him. They are sneaky little buggers.

I kept my distance. These were taken with a zoom lens out the car window.


After awhile, they relaxed.

One even seemed to curtsy.


I was surprised by how unique each one was–such different faces. I suppose one might have been male and one might have been female, but I didn’t think to check out their parts . . . and I’m proud of this fact.

(I think this one is handsomer.)
