Where Are You, Mom?

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 9 January 2013 in Animal & Insect.

A young coyote pup is looking for his mom. She had just headed out hunting. We watched the den awhile, and soon there were a total of 6 young coyotes playing around. No wonder she had to go hunt. Tomorrow - the mom.

Sweet! Love your foxes.

@LauraS: We love our foxes too, but this series is of coyotes in Rocky Mt. Nat. Park, Colorado, in June. ;-)

franz from Baden, Austria

love his alert look and stance! you do have a veritable zoo around your place ... ;-)

9 Jan 2013 6:30pm

@franz: The foxes and a few other critters are near us, but these coyotes shots were taken in Colorado in June. There are coyotes in our area, but we don't see them very often, which is good because the would prey on the foxes or our cats.

Kate from EXETER, United Kingdom

What a great capture, you must have stayed as still as a rock!!

You must live near a wild life park to get such great shots. Well done.

9 Jan 2013 9:03pm

@Philnz: We don't live near a wildlife park, but have some wild critters living near us, and we do a lot of wildlife watching and photography in national parks every chance we have - especially Rocky Mountain Nat. Park in Colorado - a two day drive from here. All of these coyote shots were from there in June.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

A great capture of this cute pup! The pointed ears give the impression that something or someone has captured his attention.

10 Jan 2013 12:59am

@Steven: His mother had circled around and was on the other side of us. He had tried to follow her, and was watching intently.
