  • We spotted this Coyote walking through our back yard on Christmas morning. I wasn´t able to take his photo at that time, but right after New Year´s he again appeared in our back yard. He was lying down and sunning himself. After a while he got up and trotted across our yard. That is when this photo was taken.
