Flora and Fauna Friday

Hidden Coyote

The subject of my Flora and Fauna Friday post this week is the Coyote (Canis latrans). A species of canine native to North America.

It is widespread and abundant and is moving into urban areas in eastern Canada and the U.S.

This individual was photographed near Punnichy, Saskatchewan, Canada in the winter. I like the way the colour of the Coyote blends in with the surrounding grass.

Focus on the Subject

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Focus on the Subject prompt.

The prompt started me thinking about some of the times I haven’t focused on what would normally be the subject of focus.

I focused on the Closed to Fishing sign rather than the Great Blue Heron that’s finding the sign so amusing.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Focus on the Subject

This Raccoon wandered into the yard one Saturday afternoon when I was sitting on the deck with a camera. The camera had a fast portrait lens on it, not normally a lens used for wildlife. After taking some conventional portraits of the Raccoon I focused on the front paw trying to make it look wild and ready to attack.

Eye Level with an Eastern Chipmunk

This is my day 21 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and another of my eye level perspective photos.

This Eastern Chipmunk portrait was taken by lying in the grass to get down to eye level with the subject.
