I stumbled upon this beautiful blog, The Daily Coyote, some time ago, and today with snow covering the ground and temperatures at -3 degrees, this clip below is full of sunshine, great music and a simpler way of life in Wyoming.

Charlie, a coyote pup, was rescued at 7 weeks when his parent's were killed by ranchers for killing sheep. He was has become part of the family at the ranch of a young married couple living in Wyoming.

We hear coyotes calling in the evenings at the farm, but never see them. There are so many wide open spaces surrounding the farm and lots of game, so they never approach the farms for food. They remain mysterious shadows that come out at night to call to one another in the night.

I have been spending alot of time in the studio over the past week getting ready for a show in early February....lots to share, and I will as soon as I take time to get the camera out to a shoot....but when the creative juices are flowing, it's hard to pause..... I will share with you soon...

Until then enjoy this video of Charlie ...

This is very cool Julie. I've never seen this kind of film involving a coyote. Wow. I'll go to the sight and check it out. That's just amazing. Thanks for posting it. Take care, Riki

I have always liked wolves (or coyotes) because I think they are beautiful and because of how they take care of their families.

Unfortunately, many people here in Sweden HATE wolves and from this year the Swedish government has allowed wolf hunting. And do you know what? Last week, 49 wolves were killed in 24 hours! :-(

Well, I don´t know what is right or wrong. Of course I understand people who want to protect their dogs and other animals, but still I don´t like that it is now OK to shoot 49 wolves in one day when they were endangered species in Sweden just a few years ago...

Many hugs
Beatrice

Beatrice - I too, love wolves and coyotes and think they are misunderstood...that's so sad to think of 49 wolves being killed in 24 hours...

Hopefully, the hunting will be terminated before the wolves are endangered once again... so sad...

Used to hear coyotes in the desert at night when we lived in Arizona, and sometimes saw them trotting through the brush in the daytime. Looking forward to the unveiling of your latest work!

VERY COOL POST! We hear coyotes calling as well....they sound like they are just under our bedroon window, but hubby swears they are deep in the woods.... THOUGH, we do have sightings of them once in a while. UNFORTUNATELY our fields and back woods are a haven for deer, and I always worry.....

Hope you have a fabulous New Year!
