Hunter, Preeners, Research, Hide

On a chilly morning, as I was taking a picture of the hay rake before it leaves the field,  out of the corner of my eye,
 I saw This stealth hunter in search of his breakfast.
Mice and grasshoppers are plentiful after hay is made.
 Even after watching traffic coming and going,
 Mr. Coyoteeee continued his hunt.
 The very next morning, just after sunrise,
look who was comfortably preening on the far edge of the field,
 a pair of Sandhill Cranes.  
I wonder where their young are or
did the coyote find an easy meal?  The
balance of nature sometimes seems cruel.
 Half an hour later, and still getting the 'itch' out.
 Late afternoon and there are more creatures in the field.
 oops, My mistake.  It's a couple of researchers, 
 bug collecting this time.
 see, Grandma, look how tiny and defenseless.
Mr. allergy eyes is not about to stop having boy things 
to do, like catching and~~~NO~~~ 
 silly boy, dip him in chocolate first!!!!!
 Even the teenage Bluejays were about to get into 
the act of silliness...as they
 took gravel baths and~
 worked at packing seeds away for a winter snack.
 The deer thought they were hiding under 
the thick cover of the maples...but
 darn, I think she sees us...hush, stand very still!
I hope you enjoyed out little walk and ride.
There is always something to see, 
no matter the hour of the day, 
sunrise to sunset.  
Life is Good

What a wonderful time. I thought at first the hay-rake was a 4 engine plane that had landed in your field.(smile)
I am not a coyote person, I know they are part of nature (but so was the dinosaur and I don't even miss them. LOL)
I do love the researchers though!!!
((HUGS)) from across the big water and south.

Great shots of the coyote! Looks like a pretty big one.

I was thinking too the coyote looks very big. We have a lot of them here but they usually don't look that large. Yes enjoyed the walk with you.

I'll have to tell you, those creatures (the coyote) scare me. I get nervous listening to them at night. Just something about them that makes me feel un-easy! lol
