I was sitting in the driveway watching a couple of birds at the feeder when this coyote actually walked up on me - less than 8 feet from where I was sitting. Actually was too close for me to get a good focus. Never did run from me but walked down the drive way... I was probably shaking too much to get a better picture

I'd say you got a very good shot considering the situation. He or she does look a bit hungry.

Agreed. There's also a cunning look on it's face.

Do you guys really find that scary ?? I see a small dog. I may be getting very use to being close to big teethy Game. Half an hour ago I was 40 feet from two bears over 400lbs and I only felt joy !! I must be at ease with all things big I guess.

Wow good shot and crazy story. I always thought coyote were afraid of people. This one does not look bothered at all. He looks hungry too!

Jeff - My situation was the coyote came up behind me and I never saw him/her until the coyote started coming around me 8 feet away and never showed it was scared of me. In my area any wild animal that acts like this has possible rabies. Had I had the pleasure of watching the coyote walk up my driveway in front of me then it would have been better pictures and a more enjoyable experience.

Ya I hear ya, he put the sneak on you, I had three moose do that to me in May, I was shooting four Moose at close proximity as they walked right by me and I had no idea there were three more coming up behind me. There was one that spooked and wheeled around but then everyone calmed down and just went back to grazing. But they were all to close for comfort at some points. All was totally unexpected


I should say though, I look forward to everyone of these experiences and get the shot, then I can sit back and go wow, as the adrenalin kicks in , lol

Nice shot.

I had a similar experience with a coyote. I was tracking a Great Egret on a local river and was in the trees right next to the bank. I took a photo of the egret and heard a skittering sound in front of me. My shutter frightened the coyote that was about 2 feet in front of me on the river bank. We didn't notice each other until the shutter click. The coyote just moved on but did keep looking back at me until it was certain I wasn't coming after it.
