Coyote in the wild

    Newer Older

    Driving through Yellowstone, especially the Lamar Valley, it is darn near impossible NOT to see wildlife. There are animals everywhere. I imagine it is like being on the Serengeti or someplace in Africa, except with snow. In this case, we were driving along and this coyote literally ran across the road in front of us. Of course, we all immediately dove for our cameras, so I am not sure who had the wheel at that point, but the chances of hitting another car are slim to none when you haven't seen one in hours. This guy ran up the snow embankment after crossing the road, and I figured my chance to capture him was gone, but he came through some brush and into a little clearing, and...paused. It was great. It was like he wanted to get his picture taken, except that he didn't look at us. I guess he smelled dinner on the wind, and who doesn't want a warm meal when it's so cold outside?
