Airborne Coyote

Coyote running along the causewayCoyote running along the Antelope Island Causeway

There is just something about this Coyote image that makes me feel happy. It might be that all four feet of the Coyote are off the ground and appears to be airborne but more than likely it is because the Coyote appears to be smiling. Not a technically great image for sure, but a fun one for me.


* I am wandering around some where north of Salt Lake City, feel free to share this post.

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. Excellent capture! Love that all four feet are airborne!

  2. I have to agree w/Jane… you captured the pure, wild joy of freedom. Wonderful image, Mia.

  3. Of course he is smiling – and making us smile too. Thank you.

  4. Now I know that dogs are not the only canines that sometimes look like they are smiling. Thanks for the fun image.
