    His ears look like a thick fingered person making the Peace ! sign. What a golden day that was.

    I haven’t visited here in awhile, it seems.

    Wanted to share that this morning, in a suburb of Denver called Lakewood, looking across the empty field behind a major light-rail line, I spied two coyotes!

    The glimpse started out hazy, like your photo here, just gray-brown movement behind yellowed grasses. Then another flash of movement, further up the hill.
    Soon first one and then the other trotted into plain sight, pausing on a pile of concrete rubble that seem to have been taken over as their den.

    WOW! What a happy sight on a frosty October morning, during my commute.

    I hope they’ll be all right.

    I love this shot. So subtle. I’ll take an 11×14 please. I’ve got the perfect spot for it. :)

    It is a bitter cold morning here today, but when I saw this lovely picture the warmth of that golden sun just washed over me and chased away the chill. Beautiful shot!

    How much of the vegetation where you live is native, and how much is invasive? Your photos are so lovely that it all looks cohesive, and yet, wherever-you-are must be like the rest-of-the-world and battling exotic weeds?

    Sagebrush is actually an invasive weed, and is all over the place. Since the large grazing herds of the past are no longer around, and the manner in which ranchers run cows is sooo different from nature’s way (quick movement of dense herds across large spaces without fences), sagebrush takes over and the natural range grasses get bullied out.
