It was cold and snowy last night. Millions are without power. All over the midwest people are being asked to stay home while the streets are being cleared.
Early this morning I looked out the kitchen door and saw this animal out on the lake. This coyote appeared to be drinking from the only spot that hadn’t frozen over.
A grabbed my binoculars and yes, that is a coyote out in the middle of the lake. It seems they are not concerned at all about falling through the ice.
Later I found that more than a dozen geese had been killed sometime between the middle of the night when the snow stopped and daybreak.
When I stepped out onto the porch to take better pictures, I expected the animal to leave or at least turn away.
Instead, he looked right at me and then proceeded to do this.
