March is a great time to see Coyotes at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. I photographed this one back in March 2009. As you can see in my photos that this is a healthy Coyote. All the ones I see at this refuge look healthy.
How I Got The Shot – Coyote
This Coyote was walking through a field going toward the road leading to Moody Boat Ramp. This field is on the east side of the road (Trotter’s Field).
I parked where I thought it would cross and I got lucky and was in the right spot to get these photos. This was 10:26 AM.
I had my Canon EOS 40D camera with a Canon EF500mm f/4L IS USM lens attached and resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
