First time in my yard (that I know about), pups had just been out for their early morning business, 6 am.  Can't imagine they didn't sense or notice him, sneaky buggers, there's a 5 foot fence on the other side of those bushes.  I see them along the streets all the time, shot from about 30 yards.

Sweet capture. He looks like hes in good shape. Great eye contact with those piercing eyes. I have never seen one standing still or that close. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks John, there are many out here, seem to love our trash but otherwise very timid when approached, after this shot I started taking slow steps towards it...after three steps he bolted behind the bushes and was gone.  I've heard they can easily clear a 7 or 8 foot tall barrier.

He looks rather upset you took the picture :-)  Coyotes are smart and opportunistic.  If you have small dogs or outside cats they are food to him.  They are one of the few medium species to increase in population as we increase. I have raised a few of them. very cool animals very cool pic. It shows their personality in the eyes.

Nice natural detail in the animal and surroundings, I really like the way you managed to capture it at a time when his ears are skewed to listen both in front and behind.

Nice shot, but watch your new pup.  I don't like coyotes, and I would not be happy with this in my yard.  Everything's OK till it's not.
