Perhaps someone fed this coyote. Or, maybe dropped some food by accident. For that matter, the smell of food may have been present. Whatever the case, I photographed this coyote – a smaller species of canine closely related to the wolf, native to North America – loitering near a parking area in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.
As I approached Richland Creek, I spotted this large Grey Heron standing attentive on a boulder, approximately 40-feet away, and used my zoom lens to get a closer shot. It was apparent, judging from water marks on the rock (see lower right corner) that this bird had been in and out of the water more than once. Though aware of my proximity, the Grey Herron remained focused, waiting and watching for an unsuspecting fish, until an opportunity presented itself – lunch! If you’d like an opportunity to enjoy a print, several options are available in my gallery at Fine Art America – check it out!
While I’m not a big fan of spiders, this photograph with too much flash casts an interesting white silhouette against a night sky. So, I’ve posted in it my gallery at Fine Art America. Stop by for a visit sometime, but be careful not to get caught in the web!
This red fox has his eye on something, probably lunch. Ever so softly he steps forward, careful not to alert the prey to his presence. He is focused, as this meal should last for the day. This picture is based on a photograph and is available in my gallery at Fine Art America on a variety of prints and other items. Great for both home and at the office. Enjoy!
