This photo was taken in May of 2007. We had just moved to a new home in the area where both my husband and I grew up. We were sitting in the living room and I saw something walking by the window. I excitedly said to my husband "look, look, there is a fox." My husband told me that it was not a fox, it was a coyote. I had never seen a coyote. I immediately grabbed the camera and started snapping photos through the house windows. I have 3 dogs in the house and they were barking like crazy. The coyote heard the dogs barking and stopped for just a moment to turn around and look my direction. He paused just long enough for me to get this "once in a lifetime" photo. We often hear coyotes, but we haven't seen one since that day in May 2007.
