Wildlife of The Azure Gate Bed and Breakfast - Part XI



Over the 18 years we have lived and operated The Azure Gate Bed and Breakfast I have taken a great many photos here. Sometimes I get so focused on the "wildlife" that I forget to take a photo of its natural beauty.

Here are a couple of recent landscape photos:

The Mule deer have been coming around more the past couple of months. They make a long stop at our water bowls to get a drink.

A couple of weeks ago there were five that came around, usually it's just one.

Here are some photos:

 Coyotes come by frequently but don't linger. They may stop to get a drink in one of our water bowls. Otherwise they are just passing through on the hunt. Here's a very healthy looking one:

While the COVID-19 pandemic has affected people around the world, it is nice to know that there is still a common love of wildlife.
