Coyotes have been known as "song dogs" because of their varying vocalizations.  They don't have the long, mournful howl of a wolf but instead have different vocalizations such as short howls and yips.  Above, a coyote howls to two others nearby who responded quickly.  The three met up and travelled off together.  Below, a coyote pup steps out of it's den on a cool spring morning and practices it's howling skills.

Cracker Lake

With a forecast of partly cloudy skies, we started our hike before sunrise with the goal of reaching Crack Lake in Glacier National Park in time for some nice morning light.  We arrived to thick fog and no view of the surrounding mountains, though the lake was still beautiful.  After a long wait, the fog eventually started to lift and we were treated to views of Mount Siyeh and Allen Mountain towering over the turquoise waters of the lake.  With the extra time we had waiting for the peaks to appear, we explored the area and our 12 mile roundtrip hike ended up being 16 miles of walking in total, but well worth it.  And of course, near the end of the hike, we were caught in a pretty strong thunderstorm and took refuge under a welcoming pine tree.  Not a bad day since I was also dealing with a nasty case of laryngitis!

Wishing everyone a safe and happy Fourth of July!  This red fox kit was photographed last month as it played with a dead bird brought back to the den by it's mother.  I was fortunate enough to watch five different dens this year and all the kits at each den have dispersed to start their own lives.  But there's still plenty to photograph as just last week I photographed two newborn whitetail deer fawns.  Photos will follow soon.
