Well I think that the fear factor is mutual here. Moreover, wolves fear more humans that we fear wolves. Unlucky them, they don't know how to handle a shotgun!

I'm not afraid. Beautifull and proud animal in warm light. I like softness of your photo Radu. Great portrait of wolf.

If taken at a Zoo, then the identification as a Mexican Grey Wolf is correct, if, however, taken in the wild, this is a Coyote.
Excellent shot and well done on the composition.

Good portrait. I love predators and wish someone would post more wolves, preferably wild ones. Niceley framed and exposed.

I love wolf picture.
And this one is very good. Focus is a little bit soft, but exposure is excellent and the backlighting creates a nice rimlight in its fur. Shallow DOF and blured BG are ideal here.
Excellent work and TFS.

My first reaction was: What a fantastic POV, of this Mexican wolf coming out of the corner.
My second reaction was: Radu is slacking... the focus is on the soft side.
My third reaction was: But I really like the softness of the wolf, combined with the texture of the BG.
Final reaction: I really like this shot.
Thank you for the post, and you are forgiven for your momentary lapse of inspiration in regards to the note. You deserve a break today. : )

Slightly soft focus, but great colour and light. Nice pose as well. "And the big bad wolf said to the 3 piggies - who has been building a house of bricks cause I aint about to blow that one!!"
