@HikingDVM - This post just put such a smile on my face! What a fun way to see this. The coyote's ears are incredible. Have you seen this one over and over again?

@Former community member - That is so exciting! I love your photo too. They're in the perfect spot to watch wildlife humans go by. Did you find yourself looking around more intensely or noticing more noises after seeing it? I saw a black bear while mountain biking last week and my first thought was "What a large black dog! I wonder where its owner is?", which quickly turned into glee when I realized that it was indeed a bear. It was running from me, scared of my fast moving bike. Even though, like you, I was thrilled, afterwards I kept bobbing in and out of the forest rather than staying in the thick of it because I was scared too!
