SEASONS

Like most wildlife the coat on wolves looks the best in winter or spring . In the summer they can look quite mangy even if they remain uneffected by the disease itself. A snowy background also isolates the animal better.

This fellow was a member of the Mystery Pack. This shot was taken along the Madison river in February 2010. It was a cold humid morning and he emerged out of the mist to get a drink and check us out.

TIMES

As is the case with most wildlife wolves are most active in early morning or late afternoon. That can all change of course if a hunt is on. The constant need for more food in the harsh winter environment overrides all other concerns for the pack. The above shot was taken at a focal length of about 500mm on a crop sensor camera

LENS & FILTER

LENS: 300-800mm focal length for crop sensor or full frame camera.

FILMS

Slide films: Fuji Provia 400X
