[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I almost didn't see this Coyote hunting for a meal in the sage of northern Yellowstone National Park. The colours are so similar in the coyote to it's surroundings. Camouflage is so very important in nature both for the hunter and the hunted.

Hi Rick.
Colouration of the animal and surroundings are really similar. And your picture illustrates this fact perfectly. Very nice natural scene with perfect attractive details/ Composition is spot on too. Warm regards and TFS.

The concept of camouflage at its best, Rick. The colors on the Coyote and the background vegetation match to perfection.
Still, we do not miss out the subject, as it stands there contemplating the surroundings.
Very strong visual appeal in this capture.

indeed - difficult to see. Surprising you did this good shot - you must have been surprised?

Hello Rick

This is the one of the most beautiful photos
of coyote (in all the internet) that I have seen,
because that hunting pose of the Coyote,
with superb POV and framing, and also
because that wonderful camouflage that
it has with its environment, TFS

Hello Rick,
What a fascinating view to see the Coyote in exact the same colours as the background. Itīs really perfect camouflage. Excellent sharpness, details and POV.

Dear Rick

This is a great example of nature/ evolution that animals have a different coat in the different seasons...

It must have been difficult to focus, as camouflage tricks also the lens!
Thanks for sharing an interesting photo
Warm greetings

GREAT photo Rick! Interesting subject, excellent composition, fantastic soft lighting and very good sharpness.
