Crossing a coyote’s path

This coyote found Jack and I as we wound upwards along the road up towards Lake Minnewanka.  It trotted along in the trees and then cut down into the ditch and then took a few steps towards up the hill again before it stopped.  It stared our way for a few seconds before backtracking a little bit and then crossing the road and going over the edge.  Beautiful animals who are among nature’s most adaptable.  I see them alone or in small packs in the mountains, on the prairie and throughout the Foothills and enjoy photographing them immensely.

    The coyote you captured looks relaxed, like a big dog. Here in Sweden there are wolves – I believe they look more aggressive.

  4. Nice job, Chris. We now even have a lot of coyotes here in over populated Florida. I have seen coyotes recently in my neighborhood.

  5. Wow. Growing up in a ranching community, I only knew coyotes as a bane to ranchers. But I love animals, and these pictures are beautiful. The third one is my favorite.
