Yukon Wildlife Series by Juliana Balluffi-Fry
Coyote in Summer Snowfall. This photo was, surprisingly enough, taken in June during an untimely snowfall in the south of the territory. Pictured is a small female coyote, who likely had a litter at the time, but still took a break during her day to play in the unexpected snow.
Juliana graduated in 2017 from an undergraduate degree in Environmental and Wildlife Biology at McGill University, after which she spent the summer as a field technician in Kluane, Yukon for McGill research helping collect data on red squirrels and snowshoe hares. Now she is a master’s student at Memorial University of Newfoundland studying the role of ecosystem nutrients on both moose and snowshoe hares. You can find more of her photography on Flickr.
Happy June everyone! Imagine getting a dump of the cold stuff today? Throwback to this coyote enjoying a roll around in the June Yukon snow, courtesy of McGill alum Juliana Balluffi-Fry #tbt
