A Lucky Sighting

The dogs and I walked after I had been to the Ag Hall today... so 
it was 1 PM or so.  We were there about an hour. 

I had already taken a bunch of pictures down the road when I saw the babies sleeping out in the pasture. 

Then I caught sight of something behind them. 

Then he pounced on something in the grass... and went down into a little gully, out of sight. 

We watched him for at least ten minutes.  Twice I thought he had caught something he had pounced on.... maybe the first time he ate it fast, in the grass, because I had to wait for him to reappear. 

I didn't want to bother him any longer (though he was out in the middle of a pasture).. so we 
pulled away. 

Yesterday's post about our beautiful Harvest Queen caused me to be given 
more information about her by the Director of the Ag Hall, Dawn Gabel. 

Here is a link to the painter who created her. 

She was shown at the World's Fair in San Francisco in 1915. 

We do not know how she came to be at the Ag Hall, but we are glad she did! 


  1. That coyote is quite big! Very nice photos of it.

  2. We don't see them out in the daytime much around us. Good captures!
    The calves are cute. My neighbor has cows.

  3. You are blessed to see these sites.

  4. Those red and whites are so cute!! Do the coyotes bother the calves, or do they just go for smaller prey? We don't have them here.

  5. Wow I cannot believe you get pictures of those coyotes...we never see them ever. Good thing right. stella rose

  6. Wow, how cool. He looks like he's on the lean side!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
