Coyote, Yosemite National Park

Coyote, Yosemite National Park

You thought I was in Yosemite to shoot landscapes? We had an interesting diversion from the intended plan yesterday when, on the way to Glacier Point, we were approached by this coyote (Canis latrans) who was hanging around one of the rest stops obviously begging for food. For once, I was sitting in the van with exactly the right lens on the camera and I managed to get a couple of dozen shots of the coyote as he or she walked back and forward along the side of the vehicle.

The park has very strict rules about not feeding or interacting with wildlife but, given this animal's behaviour, I have to assume that a disappointing number of visitors must break those rules.

    Nice sharp capture, Dave! It’s too bad so many tourist break the rules. I love seeing wildlife in our National Parks. It’s a great diversion to landscapes and for me always takes priority because you never know when you will see them again.
