Nice photo!! Everytime I see them I never have my camera. We have a bobcat around the horses lately. Been finding fresh tracks all around, would really like to get a picture of that!

We have far too many deer around too, they just become a nuisance and get hit by traffic and look half starved in the winter but people round her hate it if you shoot them and they encourage them around by putting food out
Maybe I'm just mean but they carry Lymes disease ticks, break the fences down and eat my garden
Deer, Moose, Coyotes... I'm game for all of them. LOL
If ones isn't trying to lure your dogs out, the other's are eating your hay.

Good photo, Stichy! :)

That's an awesome picture!!! But I don't really like coyotes.....I'm afraid that they will hurt my horse...but my trainer said that Toby would probably just stomp on it, and that Piper would pick it up and play with it. (Piper is my cousin's horse).

But anyway-cool pic!!!!

That's a nice picture, look at that little bugger! I also like the "paintball,keep them away, but not kill them" method!

Cool pic!

I use Lightroom4 for 90% of my editing (I am semi-pro)... And for stuff like cropping, color corrections, exposure, contrast etc. it is a very powerful tool.... I have been finding it is very limited for other editing though. (I think of it as lightroom is my "darkroom" and handles all the same sort of stuff as a film darkroom... But any creative or retouch editing (like one might do a lot of for portraits etc.) is a bit beyond it's scope, or at the very least a bit complicated to manuver around for such things, and for that I tend to use Photoshop Elements or a similar all around editor)

I primarily use Lightroom 4 for doing minor edits, or for nature/landscape shots... However for most of my portraits I use Photoshop Elements or Serif Photo Plus (which is much like Adobe's Photoshop Elements, but a bit cheaper)... So if you do mostly nature type photography I'd say Lightroom is a great tool, if you do some portraiture as well, then you might look at Photoshop Elements (or Serif Photo Plus) which runs much the same for price but offers a wee bit more flexibility in the options.

Picasa is a free editing program from Google that can do a lot too! And it's free.
That's mostly what I use.
I enjoy Lightroom too but I find that Picasa is a bit easier to use for quick edits/photos where nothing is super wrong. Lightroom is super nice in that you can mess around with dark areas separately from the light areas (and more), where as Picasa is more "broad strokes" stuff but you know. For $0 it's welllll worth it. :)

I love coyotes! I "have" one (whom I've named "Duke"...but is really a girl so her name is now Duke[ina]) and she's basically my favorite. People have offered to shoot her "for me" but I like having her around because she's very very shy and she doesn't mess with the goats or Lacey. In fact, I actually found her sleeping with the goats, out in the pasture, once...like they're friends.
Anyway, I hope no harm ever comes to her because then I would be worried that a more aggressive coyote would more in. And I like my shy girl!

Anyhoo, cute coyote!! :)

Thanks! I haven't actually thought about Picassa...I have been using photobucket lol. This coyote ate one of my cats, and tried to eat another one (my favorite!) right in front of me...Not ok! Haha. Theres a pack that lives right behind my house...Oh joy!

I know we've got coyotes around here because some nights I'll hear them in the woods but I've never gotten to see one around my house, which although they're adorable, I guess that's a good thing. They'd love to get in my coop and eat my chickens, I'm sure. I did get to see a fox crossing the road though and we get deer all the time :)
