A Lake Country photographer who dazzled residents with photos of the Northern Lights is back again with a new subject, coyotes.

For the last week, Nick Clements has captured images of the animals on Wood Lake.

Last weekend, Clements took photos of four coyotes chasing each other.

“(It was) quite the show, as the two coyotes (that approached the lake) chased the two coyotes resting... The two coyotes that approached the others were originally hanging out on the south end of the lake near Beasley Park,” Clements said.

Clements even had time to go for a cross country ski trip while a coyote took a nap. When he came back it was still by the lake.

If you want to see creatures for yourself, he recommends that you get up early and look for them on the ice once it's cold enough.

“Animals are most active early and late in the day. Especially coyotes (as they) tend to be more active at night,” he said. “With the new ice on the lake, the coyotes have been quite active and visible through the week. I've been tracking their footprints along the edge of the lake and they cover most of the length of the lake.”

His first batch of coyote-focused photos was posted to a popular Lake Country Facebook group Jan. 19, and gained almost 400 reactions.
