The early morning arrives with a lone Coyote traipsing through the back yard. It's been a while since we have seen one of these precious animals known as the "Eastern Coyote" and pleased to know they are still around in the New Jersey Skylands as their numbers have grown from less than a 100 to more than 3,000 in Garden State alone. My wife was fortunate to capture this gorgeous creature on her iPhone through the window screen.
What's sad is that we heard three gunshots a mere few minutes after capturing this image. I pray they were only warning shots and not for the kill.
