When a gang of coyotes explored a pond on his property in the Uplands neighborhood, photographer Zach Wolf of North Bend took a picture.

“However, I didn’t actually take it as such,” he told the Record. “We have 12 motion-detecting cameras around our property for the express purpose of getting videos and pictures of the plethora of animals around. Every single day, I get tons of pics of a mixture of deer, elk, bobcats, coyotes, birds, bears.”

All the cameras use infrared for night shots. Wolf has spotted elk squaring off in his backyard and found bears at his pond at night. He started a blog a few months ago to post some of the more interesting photos and videos.
