Chance encounter with a Coyote.

Happened upon this adult coyote hunting next to Crockett Lake on Whidbey Island, Washington. I only had time to pull over to to side of the road, grab my camera and start shooting the surprised animal. We studied each other for a few seconds and then it quickly disappeared into the tall grass.
