Weekly Photo Challenge: Friendship


I was going to post this photo next week but with this challenge subject, I thought it fit pretty well.  These are two white wolves from the Yellowstone Grizzley and Wolf Discovery Center.  The “lick-ee” is the Alpha Wolf of the pack who is actually the smallest of the females in the group.  The “lick-er” is the Omega wolf – the lowest rank in the pack.  The Omega is literally kissing up to “the boss” and trying to kick start their friendship.  I’ll have more about wolves next week but I hope you enjoy this portrait of friendly Wolf behavior.  Have a great weekend!

  6. That’s such a beautiful and cute shot! Wolves have long been my favorite animals…probably fueled even more by having had huskies as pets 🙂 Thanks for sharing these magnificent photos!

    There is a dearness & loyalty here incapable of expression in the human realm (with some exceptions of mothers & their children).
