Coyote on a Great Salt Lake beach

Coyote on a Great Salt Lake BeachCoyote on a Great Salt Lake Beach – Nikon D300, f6.3, 1/1600, ISO 640, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC at 328mm, natural light, not baited or called in

I hope that no one is getting sick of my Coyotes images, I took this one two days ago as it walked on a Great Salt Lake beach. The Coyote tried to sneak up on some Canada Geese out closer to the shoreline but they became aware of the Coyote after the Phragmites thinned out, the behavior was very interesting to observe.


I’ve made a lot of progress getting my new computer set up so things should be back to normal soon.

About Mia McPherson

I am a nature lover, wildlife watcher and a bird photographer. I first become serious about bird photography when I moved to Florida in 2004 and it wasn’t long before I was hooked (addicted is more like it). My move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and to pursue my passion for photographing birds.


  1. Keep them coming, Mia. I like seeing your wild pooches in their surroundings.

  2. I for one don’t get bored of Coyotes, they are truly brilliant. This one is fantastic image, cheers Mia.

  3. I love the colors you captured, Mia. Good luck w/your new computer!

  4. I love their thick luscious coats and those golden eyes. Are all coyotes eyes the same color?
