Back-Scratching

This coyote passed back and forth, ecstatically, against and underneath the scrubby branches of this bush. It was giving itself a back-scratch — and thoroughly enjoying doing so. This type of bush is called “coyote brush” — and now I know why! Coyote brush is also called chaparral broom. It is a woody shrub which is very branched, and scratches well!!
