Badlands Coyotes

During our time in the Badlands NP, we saw several coyotes (Canis latrans). Most of the time, they were at a distance and quite wary of people. But one morning we saw this little guy, who was neither far from the road, nor very afraid. I pulled the truck over to the side of the road and grabbed a few images as he traveled from one prairie dog town to another, looking for a quick meal. Here are my favorites:

Coyotes are such smart animals and I love the opportunity to watch them as they go about their business, very organized and methodical.
