Hunting Coyote
Posted By: wtlwdwgn, 10-02-2018, 06:32 PM

In Yellowstone yesterday I watched and tried to catch a coyote hunting. Not my best shooting but not my worst either. K-3 and D FA 150-450, center cropped.

I wonder if there's anything for dinner out here?


I smell something tasty.


Gotcha!


Hey, back off, this is mine.


Yummm!

Thanks Alberto. Actually, in the last image the coyote was swallowing the rodent, probably a vole.

It is good to see a series of wildlife in action, nice captures. I got up close to a coyote (within 15 yards) a couple of months ago at a trailhead near Sedona, AZ but didn't have my camera out of the bag yet so didn't get a photo. The desert coyotes are very scrawny compared to coyotes in the northern Rockies. I grew up north of Great Falls and used to hunt coyotes years ago. I sure wish I had been a photographer back then....

Thanks Todd. I've heard that before about the SW coyotes. Next I need to get a wolf and grizzly.

Nice little series, thanks for sharing

With comments above, the coyotes here aren't skinny at all, they're very good at stealing our chickens and ducks under our noses.

I thought the next photo might be the coyote trotting towards you.
