[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When we were in Waterton in June there was a den of Coyote pups that we watched frequently. This young fellow was staring to wander off on his own a bit. Here he was captured heading back to the den early one morning, and he just had to check us out.

Hi Rick,

Good to see you again - it's been a long time. Each time you post a Coyote I'm amazed at how beautiful they are compared to the skinny, scrawny ones here. This face is absolutely gorgeous with fine details of his wonderful features. He seems to have a golden spotlight on him. Beautiful setting and composition.


Hello Rick,
Nice composition with splendid lighting and focus.Very well composed.Thanks for sharing.
Best regards,
