The Alaskan tundra wolf (Canis lupus tundrarum) is a subspecies of the gray wolf, Canis lupus, that resides along the Arctic coast in Alaska. Alaskan tundra wolves generally live in small packs consisting of parents and their young that have not yet found a mate. The alpha male leads the pack, followed in seniority by the alpha female, his mate. All adults participate in raising the puppies and all wolves participate in the hunt. Although the wolves tend to live in packs, some young animals break away and live alone. (From Wikipedia)

Hello Eleu - I wonder how this wolf does in the very different climate of Arizona? A very clear and sharp image of this impressive animal, with nice portrait qualities. Thanks!

A very sharp and detailed picture of this wolf and I guess that there was a fence between him and yourself. A very good pose and a well composed portrait.

These are amazing animals to get close to. The colouring of the wolf is well shown and the hair nice and sharp. I like the shallow DOF throwing the BG out of focus so that we can concentrate on this lovely animal.
Very well done - TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann

what a beautiful animal and so lovely captured with the trees in the background. Very good framing and well balanced composition. Proper focus on the animal and slightly blurred settings - well done!

Hi Eleu. A majestic creature, a victim of folklore and deeply ingrained prejudices. In Slav cultures many surnames have the word wolf in it- Vuk, Vukic, even Trazivuk(Look for wolf).I have a theory that mankind's history with the wolf goes back millennia as the word for wolf is onomatopoetic in many languages- you can hear the wolf's cry in words such as vuuuuk, wooooolf, luuuupo. The sound became the word as our ancestors sat by the fire and listened to the wolves on the hunt. Regards. Klaudio.

Jason had a close encounter with a buffalo, here you met a wolf. Where you going to your Grandma and met him in the forest? You were very close. weren't you afraid? Splendid animal and a tail like by fox. Beautiful picture.
Warm regrads MAlgo

Fine candid of this majestic animal, up close and the penetrating eyes.
The wolf is perhaps the most misunderstood animal due to legends and propaganda lies by 'gun nuts' who kill them for fun and trophies. "Wolves kill cattle, sheep, pigs, and even small children".
Scientists know this is total bullshit, because wolves eat mice and rats, not large animals.
Yet the lies continue to be effective and the National Rifle Association and other self proclaimed hunters, are convincing many to permit their destruction.
Thanks for sharing,

Such a cute capture of a wolf in Arizona??
Good in time capture, when it was looking at your eyes with his golden ones
Good to do focus in it and blurr the BG
Greetings, well done
