Camouflaged Coyote A coyote, subspecies Canis latrans lestes (mountain coyote), pauses for a brief moment to indulge in its curiosity of a passing vehicle, giving me enough time for a couple of quick shots. It truly is amazing the natural camouflage these little dogs have. They seemingly appear and disappear from nowhere, moving doggedly in and out of the tall grass from which they blend in with so well. Captured in north Idaho.
