There are certain times every year that find me on my stomach in the backyard, camera in hand. One is when the violets appear in springtime. The other is in the fall, when autumn rains bring a host of mushrooms. I spent about 20 minutes sprawled out in the backyard, taking this and other funghi photos last Thursday. Later in the day, I happened to look out the window and saw two coyotes about ten yards from where I had been laying.
I scrambled but could not locate my zoom lens. Honestly, I just didn't want to waste a minute taking pictures of them. I just wanted to look. They were an incredible sight. Beautiful, but scary. (If you want to know what coyotes look like, here are some Google pictures.) Now, of course, I wish I had some decent photos. But I guess I will just have to be happy with the mushrooms. I wonder if coyotes eat mushrooms... :)
