Invitation To Play Rejected

I watched as a young coyote waited to ambush another. It was an invitation to play. The first slide here shows the second coyote apologizing — by sticking its tongue out: it is not going to accept the invitation. By the third slide the second coyote has actually moved up the hill. If the invitation had been accepted, the second coyote would have charged the one lying in ambush, or it would have crouched down in the same manner, or it would have begun running off so as to be chased. None of these occurred, so the first just stood up and walked on. The expected playtime was dashed.
