[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In northern Israel lives the European subspecies (30 kg), which is mach more difficult to photograph, because they are in a conflict with the cattle farmers, who shot them from time to time.
One of the smallest Wolves in the world (18 kg) living in southern Israel.
They are not very shy, because they are well protected for more then 20 years now.

Hi Eyal
I always enjoy your shots - they are always of "scare" spesies and always taken in the environment, which makes it more difficult - I know, because I try very hand and often fail
to get proper results!
No nits here, beautiful vulpes

Very good shot Eyal.
I agree with Callie about your shots,
always taken in the environment which I like.
Very nice pose and compostion.
Great work.

Israel's wolf looks almost like North America's Coyote. Excelent pose and capture Eyal.


I agree with what has been said above about your shots being always deep in their natural environment. Seems you used a long focal here, showing the hot air influence on the sharpness. It gives the feeling of photographic hunting. Interesting also to see another species than our European Wolf. Thanks for posting.

I like this shot, the expresion of the wolf in this very natural enviroment is very good. I am impressed with the flora and fauna you have in Israel, I would never imagine.
Thanks for posting.

it certainly has the body build closer to some of the other smaller cannine types than the one most people think of the canadian Timber Wolf.
It is very nicely seen in this very alert pose. Nice one.

Very good pose and capture. I like the OOF colorful background. Excellent composition.
