Fall Equinox


Tis the threshold of a new season.
As I wander through Yellowstone
and
The Grand Tetons
Autumn is beautifully obvious.
Days have a chill and the warmth of the sun penetrates in a delicious way.
My camera broke on this trip. So no Teton photos - not yet.
The photo above is from a few days ago in Yellowstone.
~


three steps into the woods
our eyes met
deep calm
alert awareness
each wondering of the others intentions
I watched as
coyote went for a drink
then coyote watched
as I wandered into the woods

  2. The coyote is a teacher ~ to drink and absorb the spirit of the earth. You connected and can therefore see with the coyotes heart. Your trip reinforces this notion. The earth sees through your eyes and you can see through the eyes of Nature.

  6. Beautiful Tammy. What you call a coyote we call a jackal. They are almost identical.

  7. Oh no, broken camera! I guess when something like that happens it is a lesson to look at our surroundings in another way..... The pictures are spectacular though. I love that last one of the coyote, that look is priceless. Look forward to hearing more about your trip.

  8. Amazing captures. The coyote is magnificent and I love the intensely cautious look in his eye...doing what he needs to do but keeping a sharp eye. This is a beautiful capture of nature at its finest. And, the first photo is beyond beautiful! The color, the light...it is gorgeous.

  10. I'm sorry your camera broke and hope you will get it fixed soon. That coyote encounter is magical, it reminds me of my furtive bear encounters in Québec. They were too fast for me to catch them on camera, but oh the memories! Fantastic photos as usual Tammie.

  11. You two shared a magical moment. LOVE your words to describe your encounter and LOVE your photos:)

  12. Beautiful photos Tammie. I can't make out what's going on with the first one - is it a splash or something like a geyser? Beautiful captures of the coyote and an excellent description of what was going on - not quite trusting each other but deciding to just coexist anyway! Sorry about your camera - hope it's fixed very soon.

  14. love the waters splashing at the center.

  15. The pool of water reflects what you need to see right now about your soul. You are a survivor, going through seasonal transition. Mother Nature is gently guiding you. The heart and spirit ground you wherever you are.

  21. They say that hearing a coyote is much more common than seeing one. What a privilege.

  22. Look at those eyes watching you! WoW! He/she is beautiful!

    I visited Yellowstone back in 1984 & LOVED it there... so very beautiful, as are your photos!

  24. Very nice photos! The wolf is amazing.
    Thank you for your comment at my blog!

  25. Great photos --especially of the coyote, Tammie.. I've never seen one--and probably never will. I think I read though that there were some coyotes somewhere in TN ---that were attacking little dogs and cats at night. They were warning people to keep their pets up. I cannot remember where that was though.....

    Have a great day.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  29. Are coyotes always so skinny?

    The geyster is indeed small. Did you see the big ones when you were in NZ?

    During the blessing of the class rooms, the maori elder encouraged the kids to roll on the floor, touch the walls and breathe their spirits into the classrooms.

  34. Your poetry compliments and accents Breathtaking photo's. I love the beauty of the park. You capture the emotion of the moment. Hm... looks like "Somebody's Watching You!"... and not just the coyote... (wink). You are blessed with a Great Eye and Wonderful Talented Soul.

  35. We have a family of coyotes nearby, and hear them constantly. In all of these years, though, I've only seen them twice. You are so blessed ... with vision and words.

  36. You brought some great memories back for me. We were there a couple of years ago and I hope to go again one day. Fantastic photos, loved the ones of the coyote but the one of the hot springs was magnificent too.

  44. I laughed at "wee geyser. You are so used to them, even a tiny one is a big deal to me.

    We just got coyotes here in southern Maine a few years ago. I have to say, yours are a lot healthier looking. Great shots!

    ReplyDelete

  47. I once visited there as a child. How breathtaking!

    I especially liked that last one of the coyote watching you. I think he was thinking lunch?
