Captured spring 2004, 20D @ 560mm, handheld.
I have 3 pictures of this wolf and this is the nr. 2. You can see the nr. 1 here and nr. 3 I will post after my visit to the Turkey. So I will be back in about two weeks from tomorrow. I hope you like this one :)

Sweden does have wolves but not at all in the numbers foreigners usually expect. The total population is about 100. The wolf is protected and is slowly beginning to renumber. A fully grown male can be very impressive, weighing up to 70 kilograms. To spot one in Sweden is very difficult but there are areas where known groups can be heard, particularly in Värmlamd along the Norwegian border.

Kingdom: Animalia

Hello Ralf,
Very nice capture, this Wolf is drinking and being very cautious. I like the riples in the water and the Wolf's supreme pose... Fantastic job, great POV and composition..
Well Done

Hello Ralf,
This is an amazing capture, wolf in wild in Scandinavia isn't photographed by many, and only a very few in this quality!
Great details, lovely composition, impressive work!
Pablo -

Good and expressive image! Great detail and Pose! Well done!

nice action capture good water ripple snice focus and colors

Hello Ralf,
Great capture of the water drinking wolf.
What I particulairy like in this image is the clarity, sharpness and composition, but for all the way the wolf is acting.
His attention is everywhere around him with the pupil of the eye high upon the upper corner so he can watch the other side of the stream and one ear to the front and the other one a little more sidways.
This way he keeps everything in sight and hearing.
Perfect shot.
Thanks for sharing.
Kindest regards and have a nice weekend,

Stunning details! What a professional looking nature shot. Great moment, exceptional exposure. The composition is outstanding and the ripples in water add interest. Looks like a post card or greeting card. Bravo!

Well composed image, Ralf.
Somehow the wolf seems to be alert...

Hi Ralf, this is a lovely shot. The water ripples from the drinking bring the focal point to the wolve's head and I really like the eye looking up. Excellent shot.

Ia this wild or captive? (not that it matters but I'm interested to know - I want to get some photographs of wolves in good surroundings)

Hi Ralf,
Excellent capture with details, sharpness, composition. Great shot. POV wonderful. Good notes. TFS
well done
