Canis latrans

Hawk takes flight from the black branch of a dead Live Oak.

Coyote takes note.

The deer, two does and a young buck, are indifferent to the lone coyote.

It’s rutting season.

Coyote breaks into a near silent trot along a well-worn trail in the tall blond lifeless grass.  He is a little under-weight.  His front right paw was infected from a fox tail for almost a month.  The pain and inflammation have finally subsided and he feels like running.

Hawk sees rabbits on a far hillside.

The luxury of indifference is not an option for rodents on the ground.

Coyote triangulates the coordinates necessary to locate the nearest rabbit.
