Carolina Chickadee

Very similar to the Black-capped Chickadee, the Carolina Chickadee has a smaller more defined black bib and a noticeably different voice.  I was in Virginia for a few days and took these photos on Thursday.

Eastern Coyote

According to Native American lore, the Coyote possesses mystical power and an immortal spirit.   He  is considered to be a capable trickster and healer but can cause illness or problems for those who harm or kill him.  Just look at the depth in those gorgeous eyes!  I believe they knew what they were talking about.
