I love coyotes. I love hearing their calls, I love watching them hunt, and I love watching them run wild and free. I love seeing them any season of the year but especially in winter when they have their fluffy winter coats. I’ve heard them calling the last couple of times I have been on Antelope Island State Park but they have been too far away to photograph yet I was thrilled just to hear them. I haven’t had a whole lot of luck photographing coyotes over the past year or more.
So I was excited and delighted to spot and photograph a coyote running on the ice of the Great Salt Lake a few days ago in the golden light just after dawn. I was ecstatic when I saw this frame at home on my computer monitor because all four feet of the coyote are in the air.
Any day that I see and photograph a coyote is a good day.
Life is good.
