It's a rare phase in my life when I don't even bother to look at all of the photos that I've taken recently - but that's what has happened over the past week. Just today, I opened the photos from the day that we found out the recent bad news about K.
What an absolutely gorgeous world. I started my mountain bike ride that morning in the dark, before sunrise. As I rode, the eastern sky lit up. What incredible beauty!
Shortly after our bike rides, we headed to Colorado State Vet School for K's appointment. Despite our reason for going down to the flatlands, I enjoyed seeing the burst of springtime that adorned every corner of the lower-elevation world. I took this photo while K was in the hospital getting xrays taken.
Recently, the Duo and I have been enjoying our sunset hikes. The angle of the sun as it sets at this time of year paints our world with an incredible warm glow. I like getting photos of the Duo together but R doesn't believe in looking even remotely in the direction of the camera.
Do you think that R can stretch any further upward without levitating?
Often, on our evening hike, we'll check a trail camera along the way. As my longtime readers know, I am fascinated with wildlife behavior. I use "trail cameras", which are triggered by motion, to capture photos of the animals going through their normal routines. I have a bobcat story that I'll save for tomorrow. Today it's the coyotes.
We have a breeding pair who walk past our house regularly. This is the female.
I've also been capturing photos of the "single" coyotes who are also part of the pack. This guy looks young to me. He'll probably help raise the coyote pups that the breeding pair will deliver sometime in the next month or so. He'll "help" by bringing food to the mother when she's nursing. Later, when the pups are bigger, he'll babysit when the mother goes out hunting. He looks cute and very fuzzy in this photo.
