[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This coyote with his victim of a crow was being chased by the crows mate. I have always thought of crows and ravens as being very smart. During this trip I watched a raven stack seven crackers one on top of each other until he had all seven, then he flew off with the whole stack. But this crow meet his match on this day.

Hi Rick,
I don't like the crows, they eat our corns. Becuse of this I'm pleased that it was a victim of a jackal. :) Your photo is really very nice. Perhaps a little bit more contrast can give more attractivity. Bravo and TFS.

Hi Rick,

Wonderful shot of this coyote running away with his prey. I love the way you froze him with three feet off the ground. Nice natural colors and good details.


Another close one, Rick. Way to go.


Hello Rick,
The action has been well captured!
Nice freeze of the movement, good focus on the coyote gives great details in fur coat and prey...
Pleasant composition!

Hi Rick.
What a great, true wild action picture. My congratulations. It is huge godsend. Excellent timing, details and sharpness of the picture. May be level of saturation would be increased a bit. Bravo. Superb done.

Great shot Rick! Wow!
What a story. Good to see you're still active here. I've been very busy lately. I finally see some light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully I'll make it there.

Hi Rick,
long time no see,well not really that long but great to see your new photos
and we have missed your uploads.This is an excellent photo for your number 200.I like crows but sometimes even a smart bird like them does get caught and for it, that is all she wrote.The only thing about your shot that could be a little better is if the face of the coyote was not as obscured by the hapless crow but I know that is not always possible.I hope for something as dramatic as this for my 200th.Again thanks for showing this to us all here on TN and welcome back. Bob

Hi Rick,
Great shot of this coyote and kill. I have to say that I am impressed with this canines ability to be able to catch a crow especially knowing how smart and cautious both crows and ravens are. Once again a fantastic image. TFS :)
