Two Young Coyotes Coming Close

By | September 11, 2020

These two young Coyotes walked out of a field and came close to me. I think one of the Coyote is the same one I photographed in August (Coyote Pup Mousing). I also think they are two of the four I was seeing early in the summer in this same area (One Of Four Coyote Pups).

How I Got The Shot: Two Young Coyotes

The young coyotes were near the Sandtown parking area at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. I was standing outside my pickup hand-holding my camera and lens. I was outside my pickup because I saw that the Coyotes were going to walk out onto the road behind my pickup. They both walked past me within 8 to 10 feet. One turned and went back into the field, the other continued walking the road.
