Before Sunset

These photos were taken at my mother in laws house a few months ago, while we were visiting.  My middle son was trying to take some shots with my camera, when a coyote walked out of the trees and proceeded to walk the treeline, not giving any of us a second thought.  I'm relieved her dogs didn't decide to go barreling out there.





Pretty bold, huh?

I've never seen a coyote in the real. Very bold, yeah!

Terri said...

They are getting bolder every day!

TexWisGirl said...

beautiful. but, yes, i'm never happy to see them around, confident they own the place.

Nellie said...

I don't think I have ever seen a coyote, though we will sometimes hear them yapping at night. Yes, this is a very bold one!

He is a beautiful creature and I would love to see one in person but I imagine it would be a bit scary that they roam so close to home. Great pics, thanks so much for sharing!!!
Blessings,
Cindy

Great photo's, and remind me of that day when I was walking; one came out of the woods, saw me and left. :)

Have a wonderful day MsA!

Great photos of the coyote... I hope we don't get many of them around here. They can be so mean...

Hope things are going well with you.
Hugs,
Betsy

He's gorgeous and so healthy looking. Mange takes alot of them here. Great shots.

George said...

These are great shots of the coyote. I guess he was intent on finding some dinner, which is why he didn't give you a thought.

Karen said...

He really is a beauty!.... great capture. I've seen them with Mange here too.. pretty sad.

Since I've never seen one in real life, this is pretty fascinating!

SweetMarie said...

Help! Mama Remote... said...

NCmountainwoman said...

Love the photographs! We have a few coyotes around here, just enough to keep the rabbits under control.

I've never seen a coyote so close-up, if at all. I'm impressed that you weren't too scared to capture these shots. Very nice work.

This is so cool, just awesome seeing a coyote on camera, I'd be terrified if I seen one of them in person!

The only ones I have seen are in a fence down on the county line. Seeing one outside the fence would scare me...

mama .bonnie said...

Oh WOW! He looks so close. On my son's farm the deer, turkey and foxes are the same way. No fear of humans.

Bossy Betty said...

Hello Mr. Coyote! He is beautiful. Hope all the kitties were in the house.

CiCi said...

Hey, I think it was bold that you all were out there taking these pictures. Gads. You got some nice shots out of the experience.

Deborah said...

I live in the city and there have been sightings. It makes me sad here. I've seen many fox in my neighborhood.

This guy is lovely though. I am a wuss and might have been scared!

Barbara Shallue said...

Wow, great shots, but scary, considering my recent experience with the deer in our creek. A friend in Deer Park posted earlier this week she saw one in a nearby field in broad daylight. That's over on East near X Street.

Nikki Thomas @ Furry Bottoms said...

Oh wow, yes, very bold! And its a good thing it doesn't look like it has been going hungry. It looks sufficiently fed, not starved. Otherwise it might not have been such a tranquil sighting!

So. Cal. Gal said...

I hope he was using the zoom! Great pics!

chana meddin said...

Aren't these serendipitous gifts the most wonderful of all? Particularly when you have your camera to capture them for all to share, Ms. A? Thank you!

DeanO said...

awesome pictures

Chatty Crone said...

WOW that was impressive.

The Empress said...

Pretty bold indeed. They're supposed to be more nocturnal.... *thank you for your kind visits during these days for me. YOu've been a good friend. I appreciate it. So very much**

Jen Forbes said...

He's beautiful. Around here they'd be running for their guns not their cameras. Great shot there lady!

Saraheinä said...

He is beautiful! You were lucky to get the pictures!

Pat Tillett said...

Nice catch!
We have coyotes all over the place where I live. I'd be willing to bet that this guy wasn't alone. If there are dogs living there, the coyote already knew it and might have been trying to get something to chase him into the woods. They are VERY smart!
They walk the edges of the properties here like it's a buffet line...

Jenny said...

We have a lot of coyotes out this way!

I'm surprised the dogs didn't go off!

What neat captures!
