We came upon this beautiful pair by chance, just as the sun was setting in the Presidio of San Francisco. They were alternately resting and hunting gophers in the tall grass. One of the coyotes was collared with an ear tag.
I photographed from a trail when we first spotted them, from a respectful distance with my tele lens, so as not to disturb. They were resting, ambling, yawning, nuzzling each other in the lazy afternoon.
We walked away to give them space, and as we were getting ready to leave the area, they crossed our path and hunted a quiet spot in the grass. The pouncing shots were taken at last light, using the car as blind (also w/tele lens).
