Coyote on Tomales Point

A friendly coyote (Canis latrans) along the Tomales Point Trail. By friendly, I mean that it didn't directly run down the hill to disappear -- it first gave me about two minutes to get off a shot. Quite a handsome specimen though, and yes, that's a tule elk watching the scene unfold in the background. Photo taken in Point Reyes National Seashore, Marin County, California.
