I spotted this Coyote resting near a field that had been disced. This was at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

Coyotes travel 3–10 miles per day, often on trails. They are crepuscular, meaning they are more active in the evening and early morning than during the day. I photographed this one just before 7:00 A. M.

How I Got The Photo: Coyote Resting

I have been seeing a young Coyote in this area since spring (Young Coyote And Wildflowers). This is in an area known as Dockery Field. Dockery Field is on the back side of the refuge between the Sally Jones Causeway and the Sandtown area. The field is on the east side of the auto tour road.

When the Farmers disc a field, it will draw wildlife to the area.

This Coyote is not the young one that I had been seeing in this area. This is an adult. I saw another one with this one that crossed the road in front of me. I got a photo of that one as well.

My camera and lens were resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
