Bishop Creek, 3 November 2007

Under the stock-pond dam
a coyote hunts mice,
pouncing like flowing water.
No elk come to drink.

One of my favorite memories is watching a 'yote methodically work a grassed over old logging road and its verge for mice and gophers. He finally got to within twenty yards or so and then, before I could blink, the head looming large in the binos was a fluffy tail and he was galloping out of there. I always get a kick out of watching coyotes hunting mice.
