No pictures again - sorry!
Of course I wanted a better look so we walked another 15 or 20 feet. During this time the coyote was 40-50 feet away in the field. She was very aware we were there. She would stop, look at me and then trot a few feet. Finally she trotted into a clearing. We stood and looked at each other for maybe 10 seconds. Then she turned and trotted into the bush.
Up to this point for whatever reasons, my pups were completely oblivious to this encounter. They were sniffing away. They even looked around to try and figure out what I was looking for but they never saw here.
Because the coyote was heading the way we were heading, and to this point our encounter had been wonderful (far less scary than the porcupine earlier in the week), I cut our walk a little short and headed home.
What a cool week for wildlife!
