Baby Coyote

I photographed this Baby Coyote at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. I didn’t see the Mom Coyote, but that doesn’t mean she wasn’t around.

I first saw this Baby Coyote on Saturday, and it was near the start of the auto tour road. I found it again Sunday about 100 yards from the first location. It would go into the cornfield when I got near it.

In the first photo, I was hand-holding my camera and lens. In the second photo, I had my camera and lens resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.

I parked on the side of the road. I was facing the wrong direction, so I took a chance and got out of my pickup. I used the hood for cover and to keep my camera steady. The Coyote was near the road between Tuff Pond and 4 Corners (south side of road).

Coyote Wading Slough

While I was watching and photographing a Whitetail Doe and her Fawn at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma, a pair of Coyotes appeared. The Coyotes were on the opposite side of the slough from the deer but they crossed over to the same side. The female Coyote went into the thick vegetation while the male stayed in the water and walked toward the deer. The Coyotes were walking parallel to each other. When the Coyotes got within a few steps of the Deer the Doe became alarmed and fled with the Fawn. The Coyotes didn’t pursue the Deer. I continued watching the male Coyote wading in the water for several yards before disappearing out of sight.

I have seen Coyotes hunting the water’s edge before but this is the first time I have seen one wading in the water for a long distance.

In the wild, coyotes are often seen near bodies of water, such as rivers, lakes, [Read More…]
