A Snowy Hunt

"At -39 degree Celsius, you can hardly feel your fingers," says Your Shot photographer Nigil H. "Everything exposed just goes numb." At Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, he captured this coyote mid-hunt as it braced against a blustery snow day. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
