The Magpie Story
Friends, we were perched on a bridge watching a magpie flirting with another magpie. As i shot this image, a coyote appeared in my field of view. A coyote hunter of local legend tells us that when he calls coyotes in, often a magpie will appear before the coyote comes into view. These creatures seem to have a relationship. Yes, i know the coyote is out of focus and the prairie dog behind is even more unsharp, but still wanted to share this with all of you. The image below shows the coyote out on prairie dog town trying to fool a dog into making a fatal mistake. til Tomorrow MJ
