January through March, 2011

The last day of March brought a small drama. We woke to find a small herd of elk outside the bedroom window. The heard spooked, with all but one running south. One cow headed north and confronted a coyote (undoubtedly the source of the spook). She faced it down for some time. By the time Gary got the camera and powered it up, she was heading back to rejoin the herd. The coyote soon moved on to find other prey. This photo was taken out the master bath window.
