I spotted him first and I stood on the trail waiting for him to come out into the open, but he stopped here and I lost my patience ... the shutter sound scared him away.

    Great shot of this coyote that does not want a close-up taken. Very brave of you Alina. I know you have great patience so I wonder how long you waited - I hope you had bug spray on - yikes these mosquitoes are as big as small kittens.

    AWESOME close up ...and great focusing thru the many branches. We used to encounter coyotes often on our hike....but they are unpopular here so not many remain. I love coyotes and always am in awe when I see one. They usually turn and run the other way. sigh.

    I can't believe you lost your patience, I thought you are the most patient person I know...looking at your birds pictures!

    Still turned out good despite the branches! I saw one today near Deep River on our way home from Ottawa! He ran across the highway and into the woods.
