One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2016—Coyote

Monday was our first day shooting in Yellowstone National Park.  We left our hotel in West Yellowstone at 7AM and returned at 6:15 PM.  What a day!   We had no sooner entered the park than we passed a lone coyote trotting along the snow covered road.  We pulled over and waited for it so trot past.  The coyote cooperated and we got some great shots as it trotted by.  We drove by it three times and pulled over each time waiting for it to approach.   As Moose instructed us, we crouched down right next to our vehicle making us appear to be part of it and sure enough, the coyote trotted past us each time, barely looking at us.  Finally after about an hour of this, the coyote exited the road in search of a vole or some other small creature in a large snow covered meadow and we drove on to experience the other wonders of Yellowstone National Park.  I took this shot with my Nikon Df and 300mm lens.  It is  not cropped.
