    Got this back in Jan. Still a beautiful picture. Wonderful focus and framing. Another one of your pictures that I soooo wish you would post in a larger size. Have you ever considered a screen saver or collection of larger file size pictures?

    I have a question. I live out in the country in southern California. We have a lot of coyotes around us. They are very large. I notice that Charlie is kind of reddish in color. The coyotes by my house look greyer in color. Is there a difference in the species that makes the difference in color?

  12. Sea Wolf Says:

    Kerri M … Coyotes, even in one area, come in many colors and shades. You may see a lot of greyish ones and all of a sudden see a yellow, white or black one. Some even have white paws. Coyotes are very varied. Sometimes also by their environment. Charlie lives in an area where there are a lot of red tones in the area. Animals that better match the surrounding colors would survive better. Reddish ones would be more hidden and be able to catch prey better than other colored ones. Look around you in your area. Are there lots of darker tones? Lots of shadows? Maybe a lot of heavy cover that a darker animal would blend into better? Be a coyote watcher and see if you can spot any of the more uncommon colors too. :)

    What beautiful eyes….and the fluff in his ears looks so delictably soft!
    Shreve I remember a picture you posted long ago “I sleep with this”; can you post again?

  15. Kerri M Says:

    I see what you mean. We have a lot of brownish grey plants in the summer and green in the winter because we are slightly desert in climate. Makes sense. I just never thought of the canines having that difference because of climate. Our coyotes are huge. Almost the size of German Shepards. But leaner. I love nature and watching it. I am awed by it’s diversity. Even by the skunk we had last night in the back yard. Could smell it inside.

    Thanks Shreve and Sea Wolf. Shreve, I love your blogs. Look at them every day!
