A coyote’s stroll across the fields
The warm February in southern Alberta has melted most of the snow on the Prairies. This has made traveling over the fields much easier for wildlife. Over the past couple of weeks, I have seen deer, elk, moose and coyotes on the grasslands near my home west of Calgary.
This coyote was hunting a little bit as she paralleled the TransCanada Highway near Springbank. I hoped for a pounce but she was more focused on distance than hunger it seemed.
After she crossed an off ramp, she paused to stare in my direction before moving on.
I left at that point, not wanting to spook her and make her hurry across Highway 22. I stopped a kilometre or so down the road and watched her wait for a quiet moment. When that came she ran across the pavement and into another field.
Great shots of the coyote; pesky and brazen… they’re everywhere… almost!

Beautiful as usual. I enjoyed the story! I saw a coyote in our city (Oregon) on a street at dusk…gave me a chill. I am fascinated with coyotes.

I saw my first Coyote in Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta, they aren’t afraid to show their face in public!
