This Coyote pup was strutting down the road as I was driving by. I stopped to take some shots out the driver's window. The Coyote got off the road, and passed by me in the desert scrub, then got back on the road and continued its journey. The Coyote look pretty scrawny and was missing clumps of hair so I don't thgink it was in good shape.
I really wanted to turn this fairly fresh track into a lion track, but we decided it was a bear instead. Several Big Bend National Park biologists agreed.

I was driving along Green Gulch in Big Bend just at first light when I saw a medium sized Black Bear cross the road about 300 yards in front of me. As I got near the bear I saw it was munching on prickly pear fruits. It was still mostly dark, but at 6400 ISO I got a few shots.
