When I was in Yosemite National Park on July 29, I stopped at Tenaya Lake for a short rest.
I heard a lot of rustling and screaming in the bushes, so I walked over to the cliff edge and watched a pack of 7 coyotes take down 2 fawn.
I didn’t know until this morning when I was cataloging pictures that I got this great shot of a shocked fawn eyeing 2 of the coyotes.
The other 5 coyotes were surrounding her so that she couldn’t run away.
At the Park exit station I told a couple of park rangers who got excited, saying that I “was privileged” to have seen that part of the food chain, and that “the fawn never wins.”
