"WINTER CROSSING"

Coyote - 5 Photos

 

It was the swans in the water but close to shore,  that sounded the alert that a coyote was close by.

 

He/she had been hunting in the grassy terrain but took a small detour along the icy shoreline. Perhaps it was to gain some ground quickly with the flat surface or perhaps it was to check out any potential prey such as small ducks on shore or anything it could scavenge.

 

Whatever the reason, the coyote definitely was on a mission with a brisk trot, covering the ground effortlessly.

 

After the brief icy interlude, it returned once again to the tall grasses of the meadow, hopefully to find voles/mice etc. who may also have come closer to the surface to enjoy the Winter sunshine.

Great series, with coyote moving gracefully in the grasses!
I'm very happy to see such healthy looking coyote. And I'm happy no swans were injured during the photo session :)
