Lower Klamath NWR, Ca
Most coyotes I see on the refuge are very spooky, running from a vehicle at 300 yards or more.  Occasionally, I find one like this that just wants to go back to his nap.  7D, Sigma 150-600mmC@403mm, F6.3, 1/3200, ISO 400.  Thanks for any comments or suggestions, Dave

Nice detail when clicked on. Looks like he has a nice coat, if this was taken recently. One of my favorite subjects.

A good-looking coyote with nice eye contact, David. It may not have been possible at this refuge, but a lower shooting angle would be beneficial in my opinion.

A lower point of view would be better, but that isn't always possible and we take what we can get without spooking the wildlife. Nice detail in beautiful light on what looks like a good, healthy specimen.

I actually like the higher point of view for the simple reason that it exposes what I call the “saddle” on his back. Very few images posted here ever show that distinct pattern that most western coyotes have. It is like a black V.

nicely seen Dave. Super light. Low v higher view? Am easy on this as in good to view and as Joe said, this view adds saddle which in honesty, I did not know so am grateful for the info.
Make your life spectacular!

Yeah he does look like he wants to go back to the nap! Healthy looking coyote, and I didn't know about the "saddle"- something to watch for as I see them in my local preserve pretty regularly.
