One morning in September, I was heading out to find the Perrenoud Nature Reserve northwest of Cochrane off of Grand Valley Road. I came across this coyote hunting. It was amazing to watch him listen, stalk and pounce on his prey! I am sure the other motorist wondered what I was doing as I was photographing through the sunroof standing on the drivers seat. He didn’t seem to be bothered by the car!
Another day, later in the month, I saw this coyote in the field hunting. The sun was behind him, so tough to photograph, but fun to watch. I did capture this moment of intense focus as he pounced … but he wasn’t so lucky in capturing his prey.
