A light rain brings the wild in a little closer.  Today a coyote ran up the road ahead of me and darted up the hill.When I see how powerful and handsome they are, I can understand why the native people “…worried about Coyote. They had to be careful of their women.”  What I don’t understand is why their eyes have such a distinctive shine when photographed.  Neither rabbits or deer have that look in the photos I’ve taken.  Is it just predators?

This one was casual about my presence. While I focused my camera, he shook off the rain and then trotted off. (Don’t you like the way canines’ lips flap when they shake?)
