I thought from the thumbnail that she had had an accident!.. Thank goodness she is just napping.
The power of man and vulnerability of coyote are juxtposed side by side. The animal seems even more vulnerable because it is sleeping. Yet it forsakes the shade -- it rather lie in the warm sun. You make the geometry of the scene part of the story as well, Jenene -- the only touch of nature allowed in the picture is a small patch of grass, and even that seems scorched by the summer sun. The most story-telling image in this charming set of photos.
This is particularly good. It shows the size of the coyote against that shiny auto. We don't get them over here, but I suppose we have foxes as an equivilant urban interloper. Nice set Jenene.
