Coyote Pursuit of White Tail Deer - Palouse WA

PURSUE: (Pur·sue – pərˈso͞o/) :verb: to follow (someone or something) in order to catch or attack them.

This image

is perhaps the best accidental photo I’ve ever taken.

:  :  :

Several years ago

while out photographing the Palouse region

of southeastern Washington state,

I was returning to my motel in Colfax.

As I crossed the Snake River heading north

just prior to sundown,

off to my left,

movement and white tails waving like flags

caught my attention;

I ditched to the side of the highway.

Quickly grabbing my camera from the passenger seat,

I began shooting images of the running deer,

it was only after three or four shots

that I realized there were two coyotes in hot pursuit.

:  :  :

They all ran through that little wash

and then disappeared from my view off to the left.

:  :  :

It was a fortuitous moment

with a camera in hand.

I can tell you,

that over the years I have had many opportunities

that would have made

great fortuitous images,

but couldn’t either stop my vehicle,

or didn’t have a camera

in hand.

Has that happened to you?
