Coyote in a Whiteout

Coyote in a whiteoutCoyote in a whiteout – Nikon D300, f6.3, 1/1600, ISO 640, +1.0 EV, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC at 264mm, natural light, not called in or baited

Much of North America has seen snow, ice, extremely cold temperatures and whiteout conditions the last few days, here in the Sat Lake Valley of Utah it has been snowing since early yesterday morning and it is still coming down. All of the snow we have now reminded me of being on Antelope Island State Park last January and photographing birds and Coyotes in near whiteout conditions.  I am fairly certain that conditions on the island this morning will be pretty much the same with plenty of snow on the ground and low light because of heavy clouds overhead.

This Coyote and its mate were hunting for voles when I photographed them in the whiteout and it was so quiet that I could hear the snow crunch as the Coyote moved.
