Coyote hunting – Grand Valley in the golden hour…

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!
