Coyote by the North Saskatchewan River in Edmonton, AB (Canada), December 9, 2010
MSc student, Josh Maxwell, caught this little fellow by surprise while out taking pictures of freeze-up in Edmonton. You can see the surface texture of the frozen pans under the snow on the river in the background. I’ll admit though, the coyote is much more interesting!
