The Coyote Pups that I photographed and wrote about before are growing and seem to be doing great. Back in August, I made a couple of blog posts in reference to the Coyote pups that I have been seeing at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. (Coyote Pup and Another Coyote Pup)
Yesterday morning I heard a Coyote howling and it sounded like a young one. The howling was coming from the area that I have seen the Coyote pups. I drove to the area and I spotted one of the pups walking on the road. It was carrying a rabbit. It was walking away from me so I was unable to get a photograph. I parked and watched it walk a short distance down the road and then it moved into the brush. Photographing this young Coyote with a rabbit would have been awesome, but not everything works out while photographing wildlife.
I left this area because I didn't want to disturb the Coyote while it was trying to eat its meal. I knew it was probably in the thick brush near the road. I turned around and went to the road that leads to the Moody boat ramp. I have seen a Coyote Pup in this area before. As I was driving I spotted a young Coyote on the edge of the road. I was able to park and open my pickup door. While standing at my door, I got several photos of this Coyote pup trying to catch something in the grass on the side of the road.
While I was photographing this Coyote, two more came out onto the road and were watching me and the Coyote I was photographing. I was able to spend a lot of time observing and photographing them and will try and make another post next week.
