I loved the build up but sadly the big gap between the 2nd last, and last photo left me wanting to know both what happened in between and why you didn't catch it since you caught everything else.

Still, they're great shots, it just strikes me as a story without a proper ending. :)

What a great series! And great snap shooting on your part, too. Thanks so much for sharing.

What's your sense of what was happening? Was the hawk attacking the coyote or trying to rob him of a kill or just plain harassing him?

Zen :)

Thanks.  The bird lifted up after the pass and the coyote went right after it.  Not much missed in between except maybe the harrier going into the lift and the coyote following up with his head.

Thank you.  I usually get caught up in the moment and gawk.

My attention was caught by the harrier flying low over the brush and flying like it was trying to attack a large object.  I then noticed the coyote in the brush.  They played a little hide and seek and then the harrier broke off.  It moved to a brush clump and landed.  It appeared to be protecting a nest.  The coyote then moved into the open area and I started to take a few pictures of it since it was a decent open look.  I then noticed the Harrier coming back.  So I stayed with the scene and got these shots.

Ahh gotcha, thanks for the reply! In the 2nd last photo when the hawk is right above the coyote's head you can see that the coyote's heat is quickly turning and its eyes seem to be closed. Is it just shaking its head back and forth like dogs do sometimes or is it trying to see what's over it, and/or trying to duck? lol
