Greater Yellowstone Photo Of The Day: A Coyote's Bison Buffet

Yellowstone winterkeeper Steven Fuller has a knack for capturing the extraordinary, like this coyote scavenging a fallen bison

Spring has arrived in Yellowstone, but It's the end of the line for a bison who succumbed to the natural elements only weeks before winter snows cleared in America's oldest national park. But nothing goes to waste. Here in this Steven Fuller photograph a coyote literally dives deep, trying to snatch as much as it can before other scavengers—including wolves and bears—arrive to take advantage of the bounty.  Follow Steven Fuller's ongoing adventures as a Yellowstone winterkeeper in his special series for Mountain Journal titled "A Life In Wonderland."
