Coyote, Comet, Iron Cross

A coyote sauntering along the levee looks back to check out the paparazzo.

The Neowise comet from 7/20. That was the only clear sky we had last week.

Oh! We’ve been seeing daddy owl, but not mama owl or the owlets.

  1. I tried a few times to search for the comet, but unfortunately, we had no clear skies so far… Always love to look at things happening above our heads, far far away…

    • Hi Herman. We have mostly clear skies during the day, but this time of year thunderstorms roll through almost every night.

  2. Now that’s a great treat all round! A coyote, NEOWISE, a cross pose by the hummer and papa owl! All brilliant shots with a slight preference to the obscure coyote [I love them!] πŸ˜‰
    Happy Tuesday, my friend. πŸ™‚

  3. Coyote must’ve been okay since you weren’t staring him in the eyes. That’s when they begin to follow you everywhere. Nice iron cross look. I rate it a 10.0. Not even the Russians or Chinese on steroids can hold that position that long. πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Lavinia. Like so many things that come and go, it’s hard to say. Three years ago we had a lot more owls. I haven’t seen as many owls this year. We used to never see beavers, now I see them almost daily. Same thing with herons and cormorants. Animals have cycles.

  4. That sky with the coyote! Whoa…
    I’ve not even seen the comet, never mind trying to capyture it.
    Love the “iron cross” hummer!
    And daddy owl is looking particularly handsome.

  5. A cavalcade of nature! Neat shots. I wish coyotes were more friendly. I think Jeep would like one.
    So great, Tim.

  6. Coyote, check! Comet, check! Iron Cross, only thought of German military medals before opening the post. Now Iron Cross, Check! Perfect shot of the h-bird displaying a perfect iron cross. Bravo!

    • I think of the iron cross from gymnastics. Hummingbirds are excellent aerial gymnasts. Thanks, Maj & Sher.
