Four Wolves in the Lamar Valley
Quantity in Basket: None
Photographed on March 8, 2006 in Yellowstone National along the Lamar Valley, the three pups, about 11 months old, walk along with the alpha female of the Slough Creek Pack. She may or may not be their mother as there were several litters of pups born to this pack last spring.
Wild wolves can be very elusive and photographing them can be quite difficult. They are often out of sight or very far off, often miles away. To photograph them, I use a Canon 500mm f4 IS lens with two doublers giving me 2,000mm (or 40x) power. In doing so some quality is sacrificed so these images are only being offered in smaller sizes.
