This is a "welcome home" kiss. The larger male has been out hunting during the night. The smaller, nursing female is happy to see him return. The second image shows the nursing condition of the female. I'll guess about 4 - 5 coyote pups are in the den. Somewhere in Larimer County, Colorado. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, Canon EF400mm f/4 DO IS USM +1.4xIII. 05/06/17 8:07am. 1/1600s@f/6.3, ISO 400, lens focal length 560mm.

You went and destroyed my perfect comment on another photo. I love wild life photography and I would kill to get a shot like this. Would love to read the history on this when you come in 1st, or 2nd. 10

A beautiful shot of clearly loving mates. You are so lucky to see such majestic beauty. I love your photography, it is clean, clear and sharp. You have a talent for catching these wonderful animals with no distraction. One of my top picks.
