17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A coyote on Wolfback Ridge in Sausalito, California

We’ve seen this coyote several times from a distance in our neighborhood. Here we are, up close and personal, scoping each other out, me in my car and the coyote just few feet away in a neighbor’s yard. He eyed my Labrador in the backseat with curiosity and lingered for a while as we sat waiting to see what he would do. I was able to get this shot from my iPhone.
