They sure grow up quickly! I’ve started to recognize a few of the Coyotes in Point Reyes, especially the more bold and curious ones. I first photographed this one in early September when it was still a coltish adolescent with fine fur.

Two months later I saw it again in the same area. It’s still bold and curious, but really filling out into a full-grown coyote. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear to have outgrown its habit of hanging out on the road. Hopefully it soon learns to look both ways and cross without stopping.
