Coyotes

Becky's fascination
with the coyote dens continue.







I never get too far away
for fear she'll crawl right in.


She does not get her bravery
from her Mom!



Update:  No snow for us again!  Just some
freezing rain and a few little flurries
are expected.
Another date night with John foiled again.
Story of my life!

JILL! The coyotes freak me out! We have them here and they are known to stalk kitty cats! OY!

I used to see coyotes all the time when I lived in Arizona. Usually at dawn or at dusk, but sometimes during daylight hours, too. Fortunately, if I saw them during the day, it was when I was on horseback, so I knew I'd be able to get away quickly.

I was always worried about (literally) running into a pack (they always seemed to travel in 3s) if I were to run outside, so I resigned myself to always running on a treadmill at the gym.

Oh, I can see why Becky would be fascinated with their dens. I'd be curious, too. But I wouldn't want to run into the coyotes who lived there!

EG Wow said...

Thank you, Becky, for being fascinated with coyote dens so Jill would take photos. Otherwise I might never see one. :))

Coyotes can be sly devils. I don't trust'em!

Julie Marie said...

What a beautiful photo Jill!... you know me and Nature... I love that Becky is a little Nature lover too...and curious about these precious little creatures of God..... animals can sense that... they will love her back as well... xoxo Julie Marie

Paula said...

Even though we live in town we can hear the coyotes sometime. Never seen a den though, that is interesting.

Marie said...

Hi Jill!...I love coyotes! We have a den at the ranch, too, but never see them, just hear them. I love the sound of them at night, we hear them here at our house and up at the ranch - gives me goosebumps!

Melodie said...

We have plenty of them here and a few"mutant" ones that have interbred with with large domestic dogs and are huge!

Rohrerbot said...

We have them all over here and love kitty and little puppies...especially the yappy kinds:) I've never seen a den before....very cool.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

We have coyotes but I've never noticed any dens around.

Blessed Serendipity said...

How neat that Becky discovered a den. I have seen many coyotes but never where they live. If you were wanting a little snow, I have some today. I woke up to just enough to cover everything and looks just like powdered sugar.

xo,
Danielle

Lisa said...

Coyotes kind of scare me! (We had a cat killed by one a few years ago when we lived in WA)

Sorry about your date night..maybe tonight?

Furry Bottoms said...

I've never seen a coyote hole before!! I am glad you didn't let her crawl in there!! Scary.

Eva Ason said...

Just be careful at those den's...
Sounds like you still have some cold weather over there..stay warm my friend. Enjoy your day!

Dawn's Craft Place said...

I could feel my heart pounding when you showed the opening- I know I would have bent down to look in...lol

Gloria Hood said...

WOW! Tell Becky I think she is way to brave!! Those animals are sure not for me!

Dianna said...

I didn't think we had coyotes in our area, but just last week, our local paper had a photo of a county resident who had killed one. Apparently it had been chasing his daughter's dog. Scary!

Michaele said...

I thought you had a new man in your life and then I realized it was something even better : )

Ellie said...

I've never seen a coyote or one of their dens. I'd be standing well back as well!!

Jenny Woolf said...

I realised I dont know what a coyote looks like, they don't have them in England. I think they look like a kind of dog, right? But dogs don't have dens.... so maybe it is really more like a fox. Climbing into the den doesn't like a good idea though:)

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

We have coyotes around here, but we don't see them because in our area where we live we have foxes--I guess it's always one or the other.

sorry you didn't get snow...Welcome to my world! :-)

Mirelon D said...

Exciting to catch the picture of the coyote den . . . . I don't think Becky should crawl in there though! First time I have ever seen a den and I have never seen a coyote. Quite the photographer star you are . . .

Donna said...

This is really cool! At first I didn't see anything in the den, then it seems like there is one - is she watching Becky or sleeping? Did you take the picture or did Becky? She is brave - now this is something our little Leila would do. She's 6 now and not scared of anything. She'd probably try crawling in and pull one out to play with! She tells her older brother how to pick up the lizards in the yard and wants me to take her to see the "wild aminals!"

She could make them "house broke." Yeah - it'd be my house that would be broke! She also wants to put them in the kennel so she can make them a nice bed. This is the little girl, when her own dogs don't want to play, she puts the leash on them, they think they're going for a walk and she runs them back and forth in the back yard. She's not allowed in the front yard by herself, so she's really not telling them a lie, don't 'cha know?

Kids!! We sure do love them!

Hugs,
Donna

Becky~ said...

Interesting Jill!I wouldnt want to peek to far into there though lol.Hold on to Becky ha.

Walking on Sunshine... said...

Your daughter is VERY brave! Snow is suppose to come here today!

ღ Life According To Milo ღ said...

Yeah, I think I have a healthy distance that I keep from coyotes. I don't even like to hear them howl. Lol. Ack!

Bee Lady said...

Wow. Now I'm wondering if my dog was exploring a coyote den about three weeks ago. We took him for a walk and he kept going back sniffing around the entrance. We practically had to pull him away. scary!

Susan said...

We have lots of coyotes. I can hear them at night howling and yipping! I love it! Luckily for me, my cats don't go far so I don't worry to much. I see them on my way to work alot! It would be interesting to see a coyote den. I've never seen one.

Madi and Mom said...

OH MY STARS...Becky back away from the hole. LOL
Hugs Madi and Mom
