Sorry about the quality of this photograph. I had gotten up early this morning to do a bit of last minute revision for a biology exam I had to take today, and just as daylight broke I happened to look towards Vinoland's gate and spotted yet another of Mother Nature's recyclers. Standing guard beside the odoriferous, furry heap that was formerly a deer was a lone coyote (Canis latrans) unchallenged for a quick bite of breakfast, as vultures seemingly don't get up this early. The early coyote catches an ear, apparently...the doe is now missing one.
