I spotted this cute coyote near the hiking trail. I took few shots as he paused to inquire the sounds my camera shutter. He seems to be not much shy of human.

He soon determined the sound was no threat or no prey either. The Tomali Point trail is very popular. Everyday, hundreds of people hike on that trail. So the Coyote is used to all human activity near the trail. He soon resumed his search for his meal.
|He decided to ignore me|
|Looks like he spotted something|

I was disappointed that I lost him. I had no idea what was in store for me. As I continued my hike and resumed my return hike, I saw several people watching something interesting near the trail where I spotted the Coyote first. I quickly rushed there and found him ready to leap on a prey. I got very little time to set my camera properly. But I still got a couple of magnificent shot to keep. The Coyote pouncing on it's prey.

It was a satisfactory evening for me with the camera. Please subscribe to my blog for future photos and photography tips and tricks.
