I had a wonderful day spending time with wildlife while shooting footage for my next music video, and I shot a few still pics while I was at it. I was super excited to get the coyote shots. They are more elusive than the other animals, seen more infrequently and usually at a great distance. I actually first encountered him as he ran up a distant hill but was unable to get my camera out in time. As I was riding my motorcycle back to camp, I passed along the other side of the hill and happened upon the same coyote, now out in a meadow chewing on a prairie dog. I wasn’t fast enough to film him eating but I did get some nice videos and these pics. Although it appears he is going for the magpies in the one pic, they were actually there for the remains of the prairie dog as he was just finishing his lunch.
