A proud animal
Grey Wolf (male)
Canis Lupus

This is the same wolf you can see here.
He lives at the Ecomuseum.

Range and Habitat
Historically, wolves had the largest and most extensive range of all mammals, second only to humans. However, they have been extirpated from much of their former range, especially in the contiguous United States and much of western Europe.

Salut, Luc. What a great shot of that wolf. I cannot believe how different he looks from his winter appearance. He is gorgeous in all seasons. You captured him with such sharp details and beautiful light. Thanks for keeping me posted on my favorite wolf. : )

Fantastic portrait!
Very clear details,sharp image,excellent composition.

Next to my cats and spiders wolves share the third spot on my list. I own a timber wolf crossbred with a german shepard as a pet and he could easily pass as a "wild wolf" if I posted a photo of him here on TN. :) As a matter of fact he looks very much like this one with more creamy ears where this one has red.

This is a lovely portrait Luc. Nice DOF and POV, sharp details and impressive ey details. Very well done my friend.

Un beau portrait pour ce superbe loup ! Belles couleurs et luminosité, bonne netteté. En France les écologistes réintroduisent les loups mais les bergers n'apprécient pas...
