You have one busy backyard! Lots of good footage of "critters", excellent closeups.

David - Sometimes luck plays a large part in what you get when working with wildlife, but there is no lack of opportunity here. It just happened that I grabbed the camera on a couple of the better days. I used a 150 to 500 lens on most of this which always gets me in trouble when I need a wide establishing shot. Thanks for the comments.

Trond - Thanks. Yes, I need to pick up more wide shots.

Markus As others have mentioned it was a coyote. They are quite common here. Thanks for your feedback

Adrinn Yes that was a coyote. Its a little deceiving, when using a long lens, things look closer together than they really are. Thanks.

Geir Inge Thank you very much. Ive always liked that opening scene and have shot it on a number of occasions over the years and still like it.

John Thanks. I never get tired of watching the birds coming in, in front of the mountain.

Bob Yes nobody wanted to stick their neck out. Thank you.

Rob Thanks. Yes this area is rich in wildlife and scenery. Youre right about the challenge it does give a guy a different view of other peoples areas.

Dale - About all I was sure of was it was a falcon. It is actaully after a few Mallard ducks in with the geese. Thanks for the info and the comments.

Meryem Thanks a lot appreciate that. Had some lucky breaks on this one. My schedule has been really hectic.

Cat Thanks. This entry was more luck than skill afraid.

Per Johan Thank you I appreciate that. As mentioned when using a long lens things are a little deceiving. Things are actually further apart than they appear.

Bob Thanks. I live on the windy side.

Eric Yes it was a coyote. They have a den on the place every year, so I see them quite often. Thanks a lot.

Bruce Its been a little tougher winter here this year so a lot of wildlife has been showing up. Thanks.

Wow Gordon,
That was amazing to see so much wildlife on your farm. Great music too mixed with some fantastic sounds from the birds.

There's never enough hours in the day!
