Yellowstone Wolves Hunting
Quantity in Basket: None
Here is one of those 'once in a lifetime' photos. I was attending a Yellowstone Institute Program in March of 2003. Part of the program involved going out and observing wolves in the wild.
Usually wolves are seen at quite some distance, often miles away. Just specks in the distance. However, these two young female wolves, #286f and an uncollared sister, members of the famous Druid Peak Pack, chased this bull elk up on a ridge across the road from us. They stood there a few seconds and then trotted off in separate directions away from us. The elk was healthy so was not in any danger from these 10-month-old wolves.
I was fortunate to be in the right place at the right time,
and I had my 500mm f4 with a 2x on it and 1000mm of focal length
was just perfect to capture this brief moment in time.
Remember, none of the text you see on the images here will be on your print!
