I caught this guy near the road between West Thumb and the Hayden Valley. He was moving fairly fast and not at all bothered by the row of cars that stopped to watch.

Hi Mike,
nice coyote, just in the middle of the screen! I really like the degree of colours of the grass. NIce POV and good light.
I like the face of the coyote, nice expresion.

Hi Mike,
Excellent shot! He is really zeroed in on some creature in the grass that will soon become a meal. Great light and exposure. The colors and detail are really great. Nice shot here.

Back for a :)

Hi Mike
I like coyotes and this is a nice picture in their natural habitat
BUT imho the centered compo is very far from perfect. Especially in these picture where the main subject is not full frame and when you have the opportunity to show the surrounding you should never center the subject. Use the rules of third, leave 2/3 in front of the animal and 1/3 behind, place it in the lower or upper 1/3 just depending on the surroundings, and your images will be even better.

Hi Mike,

A good POV of the coyote and of the field, the photo has a good composition, sharpness and nice colors. thanks for sharing.
