I decided to attempt to call coyotes recently with the intent to just photograph them. I had good light it was cloudy and the sun trying to break through. Packed my tripod camera and lens, my fold out turkey seat and vest with some camo-netting.

I set up with the wind quartering away to my left, and expecting the dogs show up from downwind, hoping I could get pics of them trying to wind me.

I made two one minute series of squeals on a primos cottontail reed call.

In 6 minutes a coyote was in my lap running full speed, I shot 32 images in 21 seconds, there were 5 yotes in all, and I only got the camera on 4 of them.

Here are the results:

Awesome series! It's kind of nice to set some time aside and just photograph isn't it? There's some beautiful markings on them dogs!

Plenty of time to
them on another outing.

That's a great photo series!
As much as I hate coyotes, that fourth one has a beautiful red color. Sure would make a nice throw rug.
