I like head shots of animals, but I don’t have many because the animals are usually too far away and getting closer isn’t feasible. I spotted this coyote when it was hunting rodents about 50 to 75 yards from the road. I pulled over and started photographing it as it was “mousing.” I stayed inside my vehicle and it seemed oblivious of me. I knew that it was likely to get closer because of the contour of the land. It’s other choice was to go down a steep ravine and come up the other side. It kept working its way toward me. It came fairly close and then stopped to scratch itself. That’s when I tripped the shutter.
