I spent some time looking for a stand-alone photo at Farrel-McWhirter Farm Park in Redmond yesterday afternoon, when I flushed this coyote while wandering one of the trails. Only had a moment to snap a couple frames as it darted through the brush. You can see a little motion blur as I was not set up for capturing action in the “dark” forest trail.
