TOTALLY AWESOME shot, Alan. I've seen this posture so many time in dogs but I've never seen it captured. And to have the opportunity to capture a free coyote like that is a dream of mine. Very intense moment. SUPERB. Big congratulations.

Thank you so much for all the great comments!! To Kim: I used a 300mm lens for a series of shots, this one is somewhere within 40 feet. It varied between 10 feet and 200 feet. A fulfilling and thrilling adrenalin rushed morning it was!!

Very, very nice.

As a hunter, it is experiencing the rare moments like this [Locked on Target] that I cherish far more than a trophy game yet describing the event as it occurred is a poor depiction that merely entertains the listener for a matter of moments. To have captured such a perfect moment is priceless. To say the least, I admire your work Alan.

What an incredible image you captured Alan. I looked at the Discovery Park web site. Low and behold one of your images is the cover shot for their 2008 Discovery Park calendar! Great work!!
