Attacking Wolf by PictureByPali Attacking Wolf by PictureByPali
The Grey Wolf (Canis lupus)

The picture was taken in a national park in the northern parts of Sweden.

The wolf made several fake attacks but this one scared me the most.. itīs very very impotent to stay clam and don't show fear here and i promise you its very difficult my hart is pumping much adrenaline in my veins now
The wolf is 20 meter from me....

I have desaturated the wolf and the background with 20% Put some light on the eyes and selective some sharpening one the eyes and fur, and i have also cropped the picture quit a bit... and put a sparkle in the eyes :)


All comments are much appreciated i love the hear what you have to say good or bad

If you like pictures of Wolves or lynx and other wildlife and have the time please visit my gallery and tell me what you think their is a good chance you find something you like :)

Yours Sincerely
P

I'd like to make a painting out of this wonderful picture, is that okay for you? By the way, awesome! (Well that is exactly the reason why I'd want to. And of course I would like to paint a wolf!) :)

What exactly was the wolf looking at? His/Her eyes were not focused on you. Beautiful picture though.

Why I think this attacking wolf was really really cute?I'm mad?~~~~=w=
I said to me classmates that wolves are the cutest creature on earth,they thought there was sth worry with my mind,What's wrong with those people!!!Wolves are the members of the earth,too!We could share the land with them,but shouldn't take the land from them,they need place to live,too.If someone break into my house I can/should/must shot that guy with a shotgun just like some people hurt the wolves!I love wolves!They are awesome creature!

What's the idea behind not showing fear?

well animals like dogs and wolf can sense fear it will empower them and make them more brave...

well normally no but they are wild animals and you must respect that... you dont know if the animal is sick or injured or even hungry you never know for certain so i think its important to no give them opportunities to make them think of you as something they can over power....

If this creature was intent on attacking you, *IF* and that's a *HUGE*.....IF.....you maybe would have got the shot, but that would have been your last act. As you have said...Wolves DON'T attack humans....EVEN if they are bleeding. THAT is a myth and misleading to make comments like that.

Also, you don't say what power zoom lens you used, as once again, if not using a zoom lens, this creature would have literally been a few feet from you. In the wild...there is NO WAY this animal would have come *towards* you. [link]

Hi

Your right wolves never attack humans..... and what i meant was that it could happen if your injured i did not say i would happen wolves are opportunistic hunters, and like a said they never attack a healthy human

and i normally use 400 mm lens with a 1.7x converter....

and my best friend is a gamekeeper in this park 2-3 times a year they count the animals and we use meat to lure them out so the "Attacking" as i called are just fake lounges against the small amongst of meat that are on the ground, as you said your self wolves dont get close to humans but with some meat and blood its possible and and of course we ar hiding in Gilla Suits....

I love nature and specially wolves they are amazing creatures and they truly stunning in every way and are not vicious killers....

And i really dont mind if you ask questions but why so aggressive almost rude i dont feel i have offended you in any way...

Sincerely
P

Wow... That must have been freaky to feel like you're really going to be attacked! But wow... how could you keep that much self control? That's amazing...
Also, it led up to an amazing shot! So well done on the keeping calm part, and the photography :D

wolves almost never attack a fully grown human, it could happen if the wolf was sick or if i was bleeding and very week
