Coyotes in Kananaskis

After photographing several moose in the fresh snow in Kananaskis Country, my brother Peter and I continued looking for wildlife to photograph. We where both very happy with what we had seen and photographed, and thought it couldn’t get any better. We couldn’t be more wrong. As we rounded a bend in the road, I spotted four coyotes on the other side of the lake. We cautiously exited the truck, hoping not to scare them away. We cautiously approached the lake edge, and wished that we could get a little closer. One of the coyotes granted our wish and came across the lake to us. It spent 30-45 minutes with us and posed for some portraits. I feel honoured to have been able to spend time with this wonderful animal.
