Tick count for the hike = 3 (yikes, already?)

Surprisingly, the hillsides are full of crocuses - and it's only April 3!

I spotted this rabbit not more than about 10 feet from where I was 
standing at one point. Once he realized that I was standing there,
he took off (see below). The only way I could catch him was with
my camera.

This is one of two coyotes that I saw during my hike. The coyote was
on a ridge, maybe one-quarter of a mile away. I took the photo with a
Sigma 180 macro lens, and cropped a lot of the photo - as you can tell.
I also saw two turkeys on the hike, but couldn't get close enough for
a photograph.
