  1. Two more images from the series:
    Coyote in Action - British Columbia We often see coyotes on the river bank while driving up and down the river for work, and we often "chase" them. We are not really chasing them of course. We are just running the river in our boat, but they don't know that. They are very skittish animals, and they do what they do best when startled: run. <br />
<br />
This particular dog did just that, and for along time. Usually a coyote will do one of two things when we get close to it in our boat: it will either run up the bank and out of sight, or it will simply stop and lie down real low. This dog did neither. It just kept running, making for some interesting shots. This is the best from the series.<br />
<br />
Mind you that our boat cruises at around 40 kilometers an hour and this dog is in a full out sprint. Action,British Columbia,Canada,Canis latrans lestes,Geotagged,Mountain coyote,Winter,mammals,predators

    1. Thanks Trav i wasn,t questioning the photo as being sus i reckon it,s a great shot but i had this mental picture that it was jumping onto some prey . Love your work. Posted 4 years ago
      1. Oh, I'm sorry I gave the impression that I thought you were questioning it. I never thought that at all! No worries. It does look like a classic "pouncing on prey" shot now that you mention it. Thanks for kind words :) I love seeing your bird photos as well! Posted 4 years ago, modified 4 years ago
