    Those are nice shots. How far was it and what kind of camera did you use?
    I just saw a 'yote running across the road yesterday in an area where they officially don't exist.

    Thanks, I had a Fuji Finepix S1 zoomed way in at 50x. The coyote was watching me from the field approaching up the lane on a quad bike. He just watched and scratched at fleas. When I got about 25yards it stood up, but didn't run. I stopped and snapped a few pics. Afterwards, we both just left in our own direction, but there was no panic or fear from this coyote (that's something I'm not used to seeing).

    I think this guy is use to the locals dumping dinner scraps 'back the lane' in the evening. They all cruise back on motorized bikes, so it must be a dinner bell for this coyote.

    Some mulies. These were shot at about 30x zoom; they were curious until the wind shifted, and then they were outta there. First time I've ever seen them in real life.

    Some spider shots from my old mans backyard.
    There is hundreds of thousands of huntsmens on his property, very easy to find at night with a torch as their eyes reflect light.

    Can give you a nice bite if they have to, but not really that venomous.
    More just a scary bite as big fangs lol.

    They are our loyal ally in the endless war vs roaches..... so most Aussies are more tolerant of these spiders.

    When I lived in Florida bobcats were a common sight in the area we lived in. I had hoped to see a panther, but was never lucky enough. pictures 150.jpg

    In my first post for this thread I had multiple pictures but edited it back to one based on the OP's request in the first post

    "The rules are simple, post one picture a day of wildlife that you've encountered."

    On STJ last winter. I was walking to work and this little guy and a buck were browsing right off the trail. They aren't hunted there so this one let me get about 5 feet away before it ran, only 20 yards away.
