This is a picture of a coyote in the backyard. My very first real coyote sighting. I realize you can't see him yet from this view, but he's there.
I was passing the back window, and I saw him jogging down the mountain toward the house next door. He looked surprisingly robust, I'd thought/heard that they were these scrawny little moth-eaten things. But this one had a beautiful gold and black coat, and he was sharp-eyed and confident, making me suddenly glad I didn't have any pets going outside at night around here.
So I went outside to try and take a picture of him, and of course he wasn't there. So I went back inside and set my phone down, and of course he then trotted into view, probably 20 feet away from our back fence, not in a real hurry to get away from me.
Unfortunately even with my new phone technology it still takes 45 seconds from the time I decide to take a picture to the time I am actually recording a digital photographic image. So the best I could do was the above completely uninformative shot, of him peering at me over the rise of the hill. Only after I summoned Siri and authoritatively intoned "Enhance" a couple of times do we get to see anything resembling a coyote head:
This is an often-NSFW, mostly gluten-free kitchen notebook that also occasionally threatens to turn into something else and fails, thus remaining its same old cryptic and superficial self. These posts begin to fail to explain (start at the bottom).
