Beautiful Pack Leader
This very healthy coyote was marking his territory as he was watching out for his pack. The pack was hunting nearby as he kept a close eye on everything moving within his view.
Side note: A little soft as it was dusk and the lack of good lighting slowed down my shutter speed.
The coyote, also known as the American jackal or the prairie wolf, is a species of canine found throughout North and Central America, ranging from Panama in the south, north through Mexico, the United States and Canada. It occurs as far north as Alaska and all but the northernmost portions of Canada.
