Coyote Dinner Dance
On the first day the road through Hayden Valley was opened in late April, I came across a young coyote hunting for voles or ground squirrels beneath the snow. The wary coyote was very tolerant of my quiet presence and proceeded to hunt. Her skills were nothing short of amazing. As I watched, she caught about 15 rodents in 16 dives into the snow. I think she was showing off for me.
