While I was walking this morning, I saw three coyotes along one of the walking trails at Sun City Grand. When I saw the first one, I stopped and he did, too. He was about 15 feet away.
He was beautiful!
He had walked up to the concrete and stopped. Standing still, I talked quietly to him so I wouldn't scare him. After a second or two he crossed the sidewalk and began walking in the wash area. I didn't move except to pivot to watch him.
To my surprise, a second coyote walked up. He had been following the first one, but I hadn't seen him. He continued across the path without stopping. He's the one pictured above.
I stood there wishing I had my camera--then remembered my I Phone has a camera. By the time I fished it out of my pocket and got it working, they were getting pretty far away.
What you can't see is that there is a third coyote that entered the wash from the left side. The three joined up and continued on their way.
I wish the video was better--I need more practice with the camera phone.
But it was great to see them this morning.
