On the way home from Grand Canyon West this afternoon (Jan 6, 2011) we had an interesting encounter. We were about 3 miles down Diamond Bar Road when a Black-tailed Jackrabbit flew out into the road running like a streak of lightening across in front of us. As I started to draw everyones attention to the rabbit, a coyote came flying out on the road about 10 feet behind the rabbit. As fast as they appeared, they disappeared into the scrub. Most of my guests saw it. What a neat look into the behavior of prey and predator. I hope my guests realize just how rare a sighting that was. The experience inspired me to draw this picture as there wasn't time to take a photo.
