A pair of northern flickers looking for breakfast. The one with orange on his face is the male. These 2 have a nest cavity in a cottonwood tree nearby.
This image brings to my mind a human couple sharing breakfast.
Taken in Prescott, AZ

Coyote checking me out.
Taken at Willow Lake in Prescott, AZ on Friday 11/25/2022 to walk off my Thanksgiving meal and to bird.
The coyote is the first image I got of one with a “real” camera – not my trail cameras. Kind of interesting as I have lived in AZ since 1977 and coyotes are common. This one was very close to me, the images are slightly cropped 500mm lens. It was not aggressive at all, if I was walking my small dogs I would have been concerned.
