Nice capture. IMHO on my monitor it looks as though you could boost the contrast and saturation just a little, and perhaps dodge the eyes to make them stand out a bit more.
Excellent capture of this moment of anticipation. Composition of this stance and detail is perfect. Slight grey hue on my screen, could be just an adjustment in the levels. I'll try a workshop on the histogram for you.
Perfect attention focus on him, great.

Wonderful timing to catch him licking his lips. I'm afraid to think what he will eat or just ate. Wonderful colors and details showing his rather unkempt coat. Nice to see him on green instead of the brown here.

Well gosh, it just wouldn't be fair if I didn't comment on this wonderful shot of your coyote when you did on mine. This is very nice capture Rick, I would have to say that Kathleen's workshop really brings the best of this picture out, but your image still is a great capture. :)

Very nice moment again...
Beautiful coyote. Frozen very well during the walk and with the tongue visible.
Excellent fore- and background.

Belle prise, magnifiques détails.
Very nice capture Rick.
I love the way the coyote is liking it's lips just thinking about the juice prey he's going to catch later on.
Composition is very good and details in the fur are wonderfully viseble due to excellent exposure.
Altough I like what Kathleen did in her WS, I still think colors are a little flat in this image.
It gould use a little more contrast and I've got the feeling that there is some blue color cast in the image.
I also did rework it a little in photoshop.
Hope you like it.
Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards, Harry

I have finally gotten myself organized enough to get back on TN. I haven't checked out all your postings yet. I'm curious about your Glacier trip. We were there just before the 4th of July. We wanted to beat the crowds but were still too soon for the snow melt on the higher trails. Then of course Logan Pass was closed due to landslide. Seems to me they should have mentioned that on their website! : P Oh well, it opened before we left but the trails out of there were closed, so it will have to wait till another day. We still managed to get some good wildlife shots which eventually I will post (charging bull moose!, baby moose, baby goats and just to make you jealous we witnessed a grizzly sow and yearling cub playing on a snow bank.... going up and sliding down...up and down and up and down...really cool! BUT I only had my landscape lenses. Still got semi decent shots. We hiked back up a couple of days later carrying better gear, but alas no bears...not even any snow bank. It was worth a try though. Got some good landscape shots.
I like your coyote. We have become fond of them after photographing so many in Yellowstone...a couple of dens with pups and some rare huge white coyotes too. I got a shot of a baby licking its lips like yours in anticipation of mom regurgitating her ground squirrel catches. We learned that coyotes can bring the pups 12 pounds of meat in their stomachs.
