Let’s get this out of the way, I’m not a wildlife photographer. I photograph mostly cultures, portraits of humanity, and landscapes. Living in Yellowstone for the season, you can’t help but photograph wildlife as it crosses your path. Most people look right past the coyotes on their way to the wolves, but I’ve always loved the wolves cousins, the coyotes. This week I’ll share a few images of those whose paths I’ve crossed so far this season.

My favorite of the bunch, a coyote temporarily hides in a hole while looking for prey

  1. For a non-wildlife photographer, these images are quite a feat indeed, hi hi 🙂

    I just loved the compositions, Russ… I could feel the vastness of this place and the fresh air…

    Thanks a lot for sharing and have a beautiful day ahead 🙂

  3. Well, you captured the wildlife so that makes you a wildlife photographer (along with your many other talents). Always good to share your encounters and the landscape around you 🙂
