This pattern set and print came out of a real closeup encounter with a coyote. They howl every night, but one jumped over my gate at 6:30 one morning while I was watering plants. He didn’t stop to say hello but just kept running down the hill. Then we both stopped and stared at each other. I love these guys even if ocassionally they like to eat our pets. So around here we keep our loved ones in doors.
