This coyote was part of a 3 coyote pack in Horseshoe Park, RMNP. They were patiently hunting the new fallen snow in search of naive rodents. We have the healthiest and largest coyotes I have ever seen. Tourists often think they have spotted a wolf, but we don't have wolves in the park (yet). Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Canon EF400mm f/4 DO IS II USM +1.4xIII. 1/1000s@f/5.6, ISO 100, lens focal length 560mm. 11/18/16 10:40am.

I've seen one great big HUGE mutha of a coyote out here, twice, about 10 yrs apart and if I didn't know better I'd swear it was a wolf. Easily the size of a king shepherd, silent and fast. Great pic!

Must be lots of good things to eat in RNMP for this coyote to be looking so good! Congrats Richard on HM.

The city kid that I am looks at the expression of the wolf and imagines that a conversation coud sparkle anytime. No sense of fear here. This is as close to exchage glances with a winter hunter that I get and since the image is so calm and the few vegetations are nicely colored everything seems possible
Bump
