Coyote

Peeking at each other through the long fall grass and sagebrush in Yellowstone NP. I always marvel at how an animals fur matches their environment and the subtle changes that occur from place to place within a single species. This Coyote seem to perfectly match the sage and grass in which they live.

    1. Thanks David, nature’s camouflage is indeed evolution at work. We were watching for quite sometime and although I don’t think this coyote had found something to eat the lip lick was fun to see. Hope your week is going well.

  1. What a beautiful coyote! Ours are a bit more mousy and less glamorous. Fantastic shot, Mike. The lip lick was just the icing on the cake. I love nothing more than to hear them yipping on a quiet night.

    1. Hi, it is interesting how coyotes in different places have different characteristics. This is a very healthy and good looking Coyote for sure and I agree that hearing them on a quiet night is a great thing to experience. Hope your day is going well.

    1. HI and thanks for the feedback. Yes we do need a reminder in this human-centric period that we share this world with others some big and some small.

      Hop your day is going well and wishing you a good week.

feedback welcome
