  3. As soon as I saw your third photo, I thought immediately of a Tasmanian Tiger. Did a double take on that one. Great photos! The fourth and fifth photo shows what pretty eyes the coyote has, especially the fifth one with the sunlight in them. Enjoyed the birds also. Thanks so much!

  16. Great collection. The birds remind me of a grownup version of those hidden pictures in kids magazines. Acoma Pueblo was one of our favorite places ever. Especially because we stumbled on it by accident without any prior knowledge .
