Striking Gold in Yosemite

Copyright © 2010 Deborah M. Zajac. All Rights Reserved.

My first shot of 2011 was this beautiful Coyote  just a short distance inside the park. Dali (DD), Tj, Alex, and I spent the first week-end in 2011 in Yosemite National Park. We had hoped for some great winter landscapes, and were thrilled when Tj spotted her laying in snow across the road. We pulled over and she came over to the car and acted like she expected us to throw out something for her to eat. She hung around long enough to realize we weren’t going to feed her and other passing cars spooked her so she gave up and went into the forest.

This made my week-end! Isn’t she a beauty!

  1. A superb way to start the new year! The only thing that distracts for me is the branch in the top right, but it’s a stunning shot all the same!

A penny for your thoughts...
