Soaking up the Afternoon Sun

About a month back, while photographing prairie dogs at Cherry Creek, the alarm sounded. Prairie dog alarms sort of ripple through their colonies as a threat moves through, especially a colony as populated as ‘Dog Town. At first I thought the alarm might have been because of me jostling my hide, however after about a minute, a lone young coyote meandered over a rise. He stood still for a moment, and seemed to be enjoying soaking up the rather rare, relatively warm (at the time, early February) afternoon sun.
