Ephemeral Pleasure

For one fleeting moment I came face-to-face with the coyote. My trembling fingers clicked the shutter. Then he was gone. All too quickly. Blending in with the dry corn-coloured grasses. And I was able to breathe again…

A fleeting glimpse of a wild coyote in Yosemite Valley

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. That’s bloody MARVELLOUS, Jude ! To come face to face with the wilderness as represented by one of its denizens must be … I can’t think of the right word. But I am very envious.

  2. What a great shot! You have a good eye to have seen him since he blends so well into the background.
    If you hadn’t mentioned he was a coyote, I would have assumed he was a dog … maybe that’s why I don’t tend to see anything spectacular in the wild 🙂
