Next, we had one of the ugliest, mangiest coyotes EVER come for a visit at the house. I was blow-drying my hair when I saw its reflection in the mirror. It was right outside the bedroom sliding glass door. I made the mistake of yelling "Oh my GOD!" and woke up the sleeping Pono, who, in his haste to get at it, crashed into the sliding glass door, barking furiously. Needless to say, the mangy coyote did not linger. Once again, no camera. (what is the world coming to???)
Into the studio, where I became engrossed. Once again, the sky darkened and the rain fell. Such an amazing gift, to have TWO DAYS of rain IN A ROW!!! We have gotten just a little over 2 inches of rain in two days!!! Yeee-haaaw! I did find myself staring out the window at the rain, when I spotted another really wet coyote, coming down the driveway. This time I did grab my camera, and was able to run through the house and meet the young coyote in the backyard. (well, I was looking through the window.) It was picking up a stick I had tossed for Pono hours earlier, and if Pono had been awake, I know he would have been VERY upset about that. It tossed the stick into the air and then loped off. It seemed so dog-like that I had to remind myself that it WAS a coyote, wild as they come. Crazy.
Here are some photos of the aftermath of all that rain. Enjoy!
