[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
ENGLISH: This is the time of the 'submitted', the less important subject of the pack.
Note the pose with the low head and the tail kept down in the middle of the legs.

ITALIANO: un altro lupo... questa volta il turno del 'sottomesso'.
Notare la postura con la testa bassa e la coda in mezzo alle gambe, per dimostrare la sua sottomissione al branco.
Gli altri lupi per ribadirgli la sua posizione lo inseguono e mordono (non violentemente) almeno 3 volte al giorno.

Hola, buen week end

Hello Andrea,
another great image from the south of germany. Quite an impressive series you have here. This is also very sharp. What I like is that you leave plenty of space around to see something from the surroundings. Good composition with nice help of the terrific light in the woods. Well done!. regards, Jacob

Hi Andrea,
Nice shot again.
Bit heavy in contrast due to harsh sunlight but I can detect detail in the shadow areas which is good.
TFS e ciao:-)

well composed,
nice pov, natural colours,
tfs & regards

Ciao Andrea

This is another great photo of this amazing animal.
You are right when saying he's "submitted". His pose says it all! The head, the tails between the legs, the look in his eyes - everything points out that this is not the alfa-male, but only a "servant" of his.
The POV here is excellent and the details are superbly clear. There is even a leaf on his side :)) - probablu from laying on the ground as a sign that his respect for the dominant male ;)

Anyway, a wonderful post!
Bravo, my friend, and TFS

Ciao Andrea la prima volta che vedo un lupo con la coda tra le gambe, bella foto e interessante nota, non sapevo che esistessero lupi sottomessi, grazie per la gradita lezione, questa la miglior maniera per apprendere un po' di zoologia, ciao Silvio

With its tail tucked low between its legs, this wolf seems to be upto something, Andrea. It is a docile gesture of submission, so far as I can make it out vis-a-vis dogs' behaviour in general.
Anyway, it is a candid nocturnal shot in which you have caught the expression on the animal's face very well.

gi, come al lavoro. tre volte al giorni i capi devono romperti i cvovgvlvivovnvi (ho mascherato la parola)per farti capire la sottomissione.
se non lo accetti ...
