Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise
I’ll stay in the Bosque for this week’s challenge. When I first got to the refuge, it was in the afternoon and I wasn’t surprised to find the first pond I came across covered by thousands of snow geese. What I was surprised at was to look across the pond and see a coyote patrolling the edge of the pond. It turns out that there were actually a pair of them scoping out the feast in front of them. What I was even more surprised at was that neither of the coyotes ever made a move toward the geese who were less than 10 yards away (in very shallow water). They sort of walked around the pond for a while and then just wandered off. I would guess that the geese were surprised also…..
