This is what Antelope Island looked like yesterday from the causeway to the island, there were heavy clouds but the island was lit up by the sun coming through a sucker hole. The sucker hole didn’t last long and the light left the island soon after I took this image. While on the island large wet flakes of snow fell along with periods of rain but it was nice to be out, I hadn’t taken any images in 6 days.
There weren’t many birds close enough to photograph but I did spot several Coyotes.
I’ve wanted to capture images of a Coyote in blowing snow for a while now and I did get the chance yesterday, I really wish the foreground vegetation hadn’t been in the way of a clear view of the Coyote. I love the falling snow in this frame though I am just not sure this image works. What do you think?
While on the way home I spotted this Coyote along the causeway. The Coyote had been searching for falcon leftovers along the shore and took a small break to urinate on the muddy shoreline.
I shared an image in my post yesterday of a Coyote eating falcon leftovers, I didn’t know that just a few hours later I would be taking more images of another Coyote eating leftovers on the shoreline. I took hundreds of images of this Coyote yesterday, probably more than I needed to but the light and location changed often and I wanted to be sure to get sharp images of the action.
I’ll share more images of this Coyote later, for now the skies are clear and I need to get ready to go out into the field and find more amazing subjects!
