"PERCEPTION IS NOT ALWAYS REALITY"

Coyote - 7 Photos

Kananaskis, Alberta, CA

 

PLEASE NOTE: ALL PHOTOS TAKEN FROM A SAFE DISTANCE & SAFE LOCATION

 

What we see and perceive is not always what is actually occurring. This can often be the case in Nature.

 

These photos were taken in the Kananaskis mountain area of Alberta, just at dusk. 

 

I have put up the third photo taken as the first photo. I would assume anyone's reaction would be this is not a very happy coyote & in fact, it looks extremely aggressive and angry.

 

Scroll down to the the remaining six photos which are then in sequence and you will see that this is merely a coyote on the hunt and the teeth baring merely a "chowing" down of its prize meal, a grouse caught in the grasses.

 

And in the very last photo, is a very happy coyote finishing off that gourmet dinner with a swipe of its tongue.

 

In all my experiences with coyotes, particularly in Fish Creek Provincial Park, Calgary, AB, (perhaps I should be touching some wood on this), my only issue is that I can't get the camera focused quickly enough before the coyote disappears as far from my human presence as possible. That is why, on those rare occasions, when I can capture them with the camera, I see it as a privilege

Great series! Love the facial expressions as it eats!

Fantastic photos of this healthy coyote. He sure looks happy with his/her dinner. When I was photographing a coyote eating a few voles, I felt less sadness. But after all one has to eat...
Images have beautiful, fall colours, love it!
