A post from the nemophilists on the meadow

 A late October afternoon on the meadow.
and then an early morning encounter ...

It was not yet fully light. The sun was casting long shadows on the hay fields.
As I took this fellows pic, the flash on my camera kept snapping up, giving his eyes that eiree glow.
  About 10 minutes later, we watched him and two other coyotes cavorting like puppies at the other edge of the meadow.  They roared around, chasing each other and rolling over themselves.  It was a delightful thing to witness.  These pics below are better if you click  and make them bigger.

 Here's that word ~ a new one for me.  Love it.
Of Greek origin:  
nemophilist (n.) a haunter of the woods;
 one who loves the forest and its beauty and solitude.  
Pronunciation | ne-'mo-fe-list
