A sheep, coyote and rabbit all in one picture:



Kind of anyway.


Rain has reached the desert floor. The grass is green in the alluvial fans on the east side of the Ysidro range. Last year at this time the badlands were already in bloom from the fall rain.


Other random pics from exploring:






Hanging out on a power pole just outside of town:


I decided to explore one of the less visited canyons. It was not conducive to hiking with a camera readily available so I missed some wild life shots. I did find some signs of past life:






I wasn't even looking for the sheep, but saw them on the drive home and had to stop for a thousand pictures:







I might post more pics after I go through all of them.

I couldn't help myself on that one. One more picture, this time with two sheep, coyote and rabbit. I couldn't fit a villager in the frame.



I am struggling with the white balance, ISO noise and colors of the sheep pictures in the shade or backlit. Ms. Lucky 13/722 didn't seem thrilled to wearing the scientist ordered tracking and identification devices:


I got photos of Ms. 619 over the summer a couple miles away from where I found her this weekend:


Ms. 620 wondering why only the females are tagged:



I saw them knock some softball size rocks onto the road below:


Most people drove by and never saw anything.

Playing around with the moonlit landscape:

Nice photos! I looked for the coyote for about 15 seconds, figured the rabbit would be all-but-invisible...... fun times. wink

I don't have any real new content from the trip. Just more variations on the pictures already posted.

A palm grove that requires some work to visit:







I know some people on this forum like taking photos of animal scat they find. I don't think anyone has posted it being created, yet.

Thanks for the awesome photos! What were the odds of getting the PG-13 shot?

Check out the photo of the ram in my last post. He is making a scat deposit as he walks Loo Flush I only noticed when going through the pictures after.

I question if from the hill separating Indian Canyon and Borrego Palm Canyon you may be able to get a Sheep, Coyote, and Rabbit without a single animal with a wide angle shot (panorama). if it were not for the ridge on South Side of Sheep extending so far, it would definitely be possible.
