Out and about driving Sunday morning on a twisty road northeast of Denver I caught a glimpse of something bolting across the road. Slowing down I see a bushy tail just as it disappeared on the other side of a berm. Coming to a stop and getting out I find this beautiful Coyote.
It was not too thrilled about being spotted and proceeded to the top of a nearby hill where it finally stopped and turned around just long enough for me a capture a few images.
Coyotes are amazingly adaptable animals and have not been greatly impacted by human expansion. Here in the area I live, this has resulted in some human – coyote conflicts, mainly with the coyotes attacking domestic pets. They range across North America and some have even been seen into Central America and Panama.
