Where IS it?


On another roadside stop, we saw this coyote looking for something.  I was able to shoot the pictures right from the truck window.  Fortunately my zoom (only a 300mm) was already attached.  Our little miniature Schnauzer stayed quiet.  He must have sensed he might be prey as well.






I didn't catch the cute little hop the coyote made while searching for what was probably a mouse but we really enjoyed watching the hunt, however unsuccessful it might have been.

Beautiful pictures of the coyote.. He was looking HARD at something. It probably didn't stay out of his reach for long!!!! Glad you all and your doggie were safe in the truck!!!! Yipes!
Hugs,

Excellent shots! Looking at the coyote makes me feel I'm seeing a domestic dog. Are they aggressive? If you were out of the vehicle would it attack? Thanks for sharing. (((Hugs))) Jo

Wonderful captures. Coyotes have such great hearing it's hard to say what it may have found.

Great capture, coyotes are so much fun to watch when they are hunting. Those little hops they do are great.
Have a great weekend,
