A Coyote Lookback

A little curiosity - 2014 © Christopher Martin

This young coyote was sitting on the edge of the gravel road when I walked by.  We watched each other for a minute and then the pup got up and trotted away.  Given their curiosity, I hoped for a look back over the shoulders and he was kind enough to oblige.  He hopped off of the road right after this and joined a second pup and the mother.  They were in the trees so I caught a fleeting glimpse of the family but no photographs.

  3. The image of the road is already beautiful but the pup makes it so special and extra special is his backwards glance.

  6. Chris that is a great image. You know I live near DC and they say there are coyotes but I always have a challenge telling the difference between a fox and a coyote. But after seeing your photo, I think I may have seen a coyote after all, good work!
