Death Valley National Park

Driving down the Badwater Basin road one afternoon near the Artist Palette turnoff I came across this handsome park resident looking for a meal. Was I ready to shoot? Yes I was. I wasn't specifically looking to photograph wildlife in the park that day, but when I'm driving to scout out new locations in the park I always have my wildlife camera and lens ready to go just in case. This was a quick encounter; I got off about a dozen shots before my new friend got out of range. If I didn't have my gear ready to go I would have missed this great wildlife opportunity. I was thankful that I got the chance to see this beautiful coyote up close, but also that I had my gear ready to go. Always be ready to shoot - you never know what might cross your path in Death Valley.
