Under the Leader

As featured on the Photo of the Day page on January 30, 2002:
Another rainy day at Wolf Park. It was a very, very rainy day with wet and muddy wolves. I shot through the observation room window -- wolves doing wolfy things. Marion is in full heat now and Seneca, her mate and the alpha male is doing his bit to guard her from the rest of the pack.
Poor Tristan pretty much was just in the way and ended up underneath a disgruntled Seneca... Such ritualized aggression is typical this time of year.
