Coyotes fighting for a piece of carrott.
Cropped on sides and bottom but respected the format. Contoured and darkened and kept the fluffed snow by their paws. Light enhancement.

We see at the back of the head, a third coyote. The coyote on his back is surrendering as the third coyote acts as if there was nothing going on. The best way to be left alone by the Alpha.
