BC Day3 critters

Our amazing morning which included shy subjects like Porcupine was filled with this fellow. Like most Coyotes of Yellowstone, we found him in the middle of the main road. But shortly after introductions he led us into a parking lot where we spent nearly an hour photographing him. He had obviously been fed a lot by folks (which sucks) which I discovered when I made a quick hand movement to drive a fly from the truck which it mistook for food being handed out. Our encounter ended with me lying on the blacktop flat so as to put a green background behind him.

Our afternoon started off just heartbeats after setting  up our rigs so we could shoot from the vehicles. This loan bull was taking an afternoon swim and came out right in our laps. He was a brief but very cool experience. I’m in the midst of editing the 1800 images from the day. I wanted to get a couple of images up just to bring you into the world of Yellowstone in fall. There is more to come.
