Wow, Look What’s Right Here: Coyote behavior

I watched this fellow laze around and then, while still “all lazed up” concentrate on what was right there at the tip of his nose. He remained in the same spot for some time, in his relaxed position, not getting up, tweaking his ears, turning his head, looking at the ground right at his nose tip. Then he got up and dug for about a minute before pouncing on his treasure. Too bad. He didn’t get anything — it was probably just too easy of a find!! Total duration of the “hunt” was about eight minutes: seven minutes of “triangulation” while remaining lying down, 40 seconds of digging, and then the leap and a few seconds of further digging before the resignation stance which showed defeat.
