The last few days of vacation and beautiful weather had us out hunting coyotes, rabbits, and just waking the sage brush.
Here is a huge local herd of antelope we saw every day. They sure look great with their rumps flaired in alarm and running in unison.
There was a coyote out the day before that would hang out on the fringe and run though the animals occasionally. Interesting to watch the animals interact with eachother.
Here's a nice shot of the canal. They turned the water off a few months ago and its nice and quiet. Alot of animal tracks through it too - it was just like a deer highway.
Out by the shop we spotted alot of pheasants. There were more than usual out this year - interesting because we also saw more coyotes out than usual.
The roosters we saw here never flushed - they were old and cagey and ran for miles. Duck-n-run.
Fun to see!
Alot of bunnies around too. Infestation is the term Grandma used - bunnies are not a cute, cuddly thing to Grandma and her garden.
We are curious about the predator-prey balance, with seeing so many of both.
Shortly after we started talking another rabbit flushed, and off they ran.
