The coyotes killing the kitfoxes is nature and what's called the food chain.
Still sorry that it had to happen. I think the kitfoxes are a lot cuter than the song dog.

Cracking shot Mike.
Is that normal for them to be in residential areas? Isn't it dangerous? Thought these were aggressive and rather wild.

I tried to answer your question, but forgot to thank you for the very nice compliment you made. :oops: :oops: So thank you kindly Neal.

Nice, healthy looking

He surely oughta be healthy, Rob. This guy's got an endless supply of cottontail rabbits that live in the stacks of irrigation pipes. He also gets occasional ground squirrels and fox squirrels. How can a coyote ask for more than that!:lol:

I think most of us here are aware of "mother nature," and just how harsh she can be at times. However, when looking at the whole picture, it all works perfectly. I've always marveled at just how perfectly it all comes together. I was a biology teacher, and this is one of the main points I tried to get across to my students. Yes, it was hard for all of us out there at the college to see these endangered kitfoxes get killed and eaten by coyotes. But like you said, they are all part of the food chain, as are we. Fortunately we are at the top of the food chain, except when swimming with great white sharks.;-)a

You surely nailed this one Rob!

Beautifully captured shot, Rob. The lichens growing on the branch adds a nice colorful effect, as does the lovely yellow colored background.

Tom, this is a really beautiful capture of the American Kestrel falcon! The color is terrific, plus I really like the cactus stump that he's perched on.

Hi Mike...

You've produced a wonderful photograph with beautiful light, a wary pose and great processing.

Tom

Thank you very much for your thoughtful, uplifting compliment, Tom! It means a lot to me.

Thanks for your reply. Not sure if today's college "students" could come to grips with it.

I understand what you are saying, and I totally agree with you. For the first 10 years that I taught, I took all the kids from my life science class to a beef slaughter house (with parent approval), so they could see that hamburger's didn't grow on trees. I wanted them to see the entire process of how meat ended up on the diner table. Every year, I felt that our field trip was truly a successful eyeopener for all my kids.
