Shots of a lifetime

In over thirty years of pushing the shutter button, I have found that getting everything just right: the light and the subject; plus, being in the right place at the right time and having the subjects co-operate is something that seldom happens for that once-in-a-lifetime-shot. I was watching a coyote “mousing”, just getting ready to take the shot when a streak of grey flashed through the viewfinder. I raised my head up from the camera to see a Northern Harrier hovering above the coyote. I took the shot…and another…and another.

The coyote had found the harrier’s nest.

The bird would not leave him alone.

For the next ten minutes the battle was on.

There were no clear winners in this life and death struggle.

The bird lost nestlings, the coyote lost blood, I alone gained. What a show!

You don’t find many days that everything goes right .  The weather  was perfect with plenty of light to provide with the shutter speeds I needed.  The table was set, the Stinkweeds were in bloom!  ( Alias…  the Rocky Mountain Bee plant…  a natural Rufous Hummingbird magnet.)  I managed to catch a few ” Jewels-in -Flight.”
