Dueling Coyotes

We found 2 coyotes pretty close to the road while exploring Antelope Island at the Great Salt Lake in Utah. We stopped, took photos & then listened in amazement as they started to howl for eachother. They were about 50 feet apart in the tall grasses, and were well aware of our presence. They didn't stop on our account. It was pretty amazing to hear and see!

Great shots of the coyotes. Here where we live, if the windows are open at night, we often hear the Coyotes barking and yipping up in the hills south of us.
