Wile E. Coyote



    One of the things I enjoy about living somewhat out in the boonies is the unexpected joy of encountering wildlife. While listening to 'S is for Silence' on CD with the family in the kitchen, just puttering around doing assorted housework, I glanced out the window and saw what looked like an overgrown chihuahua in the driveway. Upon closer inspection, my wife and I decided that it was a coyote. He wandered in and out of view for a while, then came back jumped around a bit and nabbed what is likely a mouse or similar rodent. Thus I was able to capture this shot. This shot is also exemplary of why I have been wanting a new pocket camera with an optical zoom, as I didn't dare leave the house to get a closer shot. Really, it's a coyote. :-)
