On the phone with a client, I grabbed my videocam. How lucky was that? Luck = preparation opportunity!

Very cool! The coyote is adorable. Bet he/she wouldn't want to be called that. Or maybe, yes.

What a great opportunity not missed! I am pleased that the kitties were indoor though…

I spotted a coyote this evening. He was loping across the street to the fire station. It was 8:45 pm, and I was on my way to pick up child #4 from volleyball practice. Makes me nervous for our dogs!

BTW
This isn't the canine hubby spotted early one morning.
His was larger, and had more grey in it. We figure that one is a coyote/wolf cross , since they think the Eastern Wolf, found in this area, are quite unusual.

What a beauty. Good for you for being ready to capture his visit.

Up until a year ago, I lived by a park with a pond in Mississauga for 29 years. We had more wildlife come to that spot than I've yet to see up here (although different critters, too). Everyone.. I mean EVERYONE spotted coyotes regularly. Everyone but me. In nearly 3 decades, I finally saw my first and only coyote about a month or two before I moved. And he allowed me a decent photo of him before he moved on. I felt it was my goodbye gift.

In Los Angeles we lived across the street from a park with lots of natural hills. The coyotes came over to hunt in our housing tract for pets. I hated it when they howled and ran behind the house. We tried to keep our cats indoors, but if they escaped we worried every minute. - Margy
