Just for Fun

Another one of those shots I never thought I would ever post but I am feeling in a funny mood today so here it is.
I find this to be an unusual expression that I must of clicked the shutter at the right moment to get this look.
Anyway the wolf looks totally irreverent.Funny how we personify animals, but to me this looks like a wolf "sticking it's tongue out"at something in a cheeky manner.
I hope you get a chuckle from it.

I am happy to say that I saw the three snowy owls from last winter back on their utility poles today.Unfortunately one of the farmers has posted his fields with no trespassing signs so the owls will have to be photographed in adjacent fields.Hopefully this will be a minor problem .They are easily viewed from the road still.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Wolf,

I love it - and I love the title! You got it just right. This is very amusing as he seems to be telling you what he thinks of your camera. It was either great timing or great luck to get this one - or maybe a combination of the two. He is beautiful and the expression is priceless. Have a great weekend.


Hi neighbor RF,

Animals could be so funny, all of them! I have some special cats living here and I see that Canine representants could be of some inspiration too! This is a great capture with excellent timing and technique! Thanks!

Hi Wolf,

Hello Wolf !
Wow, what a great picture - so funny ! I love the expression on the wolf's face. He looks like he's making fun of someone - you, perhaps? :-) And the technical aspect of the picture is excellent too. Details, colors, composition, exposure, everything is as good as one can hope. Very well done !

Hi Wolf,
a cute shot. the colour is so great especially when you have all white. Being funny is actually very captivating. it adds something unique to the usual shots.
nice composition of animal in action.


Ciao Wolf,
simpatico momento di cattura per questo ritratto, ottimi POV, DOF e composizione, buona nitidezza, belli i colori e il contrasto con BG.

Hi Wolf,

The artic wolf is having fun pulling his tongue at the photographer. The close-up point of view is allowing tosee the details and colors of the wolf. The subject is well frame. The colors are enhanced by the good light. Have a nice day.

Hi Wolfie

Chuckle, chuckle, chuckle & chuckle (breathe) chuckle, chu...ok, that's enough laughter for now. I suppose I got what you wanted. I hope you are satisfied that I now have a sore tummy from all the chuckles (!)

Superb moment, seriously funny expression, downright terrific or magnificently opportune timing and a wonderfully enjoyable result.

I want to thank you for the wonderful friendship you extended to me this past 2008. Before WolfPower and after the great divide. Also, I want to wish you and your loved ones a joyous Christmas and a wonderful New Year. May this Christ-fest and the imminent 2009 bring you everything that is beautiful and admirable, provide all your needs with blissful exuberance, present you with that which is edifying and inspiring, grant you blessed peace and harmony, and bestow upon you a myriad of worthwhile pleasures and breathtaking moments with close friends and dear family.

Well done MF and TFS.

PS. On a more serious note: Our local newspaper "The Zululand Observer" publish a weekly article which normally show some weird (funny) animal photo accompanied by a short tongue-in-cheek story called "Sights you may not see in a lifetime". This posting would fit this article just perfectly, with a write-up about this wolf's reaction after it heard of the human rights violations, outrageous atrocities and ridiculous antics of president Robert Mugabe from Zimbabwe.

fantastic, thanks for sharing
