While In Shenandoah National Park I expect to photograph whitetail deer and turkeys, squirrels and some birds, I always hope to see some black bears and can't wait for that bobcat encounter. What I should have expected to see but never thought about it was coyotes. When I was there earlier this month I spent time both days photographing this coyote from a hill side. He dug and dug and came up with a mouth full of dirt numerous times. If he ever caught anything that first day he ate it before showing it to me. I have photographed coyotes numerous times in Yellowstone but never like the photo opportunity this guy gave me. I have also never seen a better looking coyote as this one. He looks like he eats well and had a very nice coat. You will be seeing some more of this guy from this day and the photos I got the second day.
