[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I would like to dedicate this image to Pauly and Bungbing, who are both excellent photographers and people. You are great contributors to this site who have shown a lot of class.

This image is of a Gray Wolf pup that I believe is Spirit's pup, if you remember I posted an image in May of Spirit the alpha male of the Pipestone Pack in Banff National Park. This image was captured only 200 meters from where we meet Spirit in May. I have been so blessed in the wild, this was an incredible meeting which ended far too soon for my liking, but to have it at all is amazing.
Hope you like this image Pauly & Bungbing

A wonderful image. The intense concentration of the cub is beguiling. regards yiannis

Hallo Rick
You have outdone yourself again my friend. This is such a lovely animal and you have captured it so well showing all the remarkable details to its best. The colours are beautiful, and the technical aspects of your photography is great in all aspects. Focus, viewpoint, sunny colours and composition is only a few to mention that I favour looking at this image. It was indeed a pleasure to stop by this splendid shot. Thanks for sharing as part of a dedication to Pauly and Bungbing. Best regards.

A wonderful result of an opportunity well taken, the black Wolf-cub being shown with fine sharpness and DOF as it stares intensly at the photographer. Great POV, natural saturated colours in a pleasing composition.
Thanks for sharing this and its nice to see a posting from you again Rick.

just an amazing photo shot, bravo Rick!

Hi Rick,

First of all I would like to thank you for your dedication in which I am deeply honoured, their are so many good people here on Trek Nature that deserve the same accolade and again I say thank you,

Yes indeed Rick this is such a dramatic image of this Gray Wolf pup, some would complain about foreground or light but the impact here is the eye's, distinctive and powerful, what's more is that its taken in its natural habitat and that's the only place you will picture this guy, well done Rick, Major League stuff here,
Thanks again for your wonderful dedication my good friend,
Best regards,


This one takes the cake Rick. I simply love the expression on its face. That truly makes the whole picture. You're my natural photo hero.

Hello Rick,
A gorgeous view of this little Wolf cub peeping up from the grass! Excellent eye contact, lovely sharp details and natural colours.
I like the low POV and the composition too.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Bonjour Rick,
Délicate attention et splendide publication dans laquelle l'attitude du jeune loup est remarquable avec son regard attendrissant.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Fantastic photo Rick! The composition, the BG, the lighting, the colours and the sharpness are excellent.

Hello rick,
this another one that is irresistable. Exciting contrast in its cuteness of natural view and nature exposition.
The blurry background is so pleasant and the greenery is so pleasant.
Exciting off centre presentation.


Hi Rick,
I see you've found your wolfs again. You certainly have an eye for capturing these great animals in a most wonderful way. I like how you've got eye contact with this youngster and how you were able to capture him on eye level. The depth of field is great, with just a touch of softness in the front and a good doze in the back.
