Sharing moments in time…

Don’t get too close!

I thought I’d end our look at the Wolves with a close-up in case anyone wanted to feel like a deer being hunted 🙂  It was a real pleasure to be able to observe the wolves at close range.  I think you’ll agree that these are magnificent animals.

Stare down …..she won

I hadn’t included any photos from the other “mountain” pack of wolves at the center – here’s one of McKinley the Alpha Male of that pack.  He is the biggest of all of the wolves at the center (at 120 lbs.)

    Scott’s stories and photos of the wolves in Yellowstone are fabulous. But the close up picture of the wolf is my favorite. Thank you Scott

      • Are there any wolves left in France? I think I once heard that there might be some in Siberia. You will see other canines in the south of France all attached to people.

      • Judy, I saw a 2011 article that said there were about 200 wolves making a comeback in France after they were put on the endangered species list.

  8. Your photos of wolves have been a real treat. They are amazing and impressive animals. I’m glad that you got the opportunity to see them up close and personal (or as close as one would care to get to a wolf). I hope I get to see them also.
