I photographed this Coyote on a firebreak at Fort Chaffee here in Arkansas. I was standing on the edge of the firebreak when I heard something walking through the brush near me. I took a few steps, and it moved closer. I sat on the ground and waited. A few seconds later a Coyote walked out into the firebreak in front of me. It stared at me for a few seconds and then walked away.
