The vigilant Wolves by PictureByPali The vigilant Wolves by PictureByPali
The Grey Wolf (Canis lupus)

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

The picture was taken in an national park in the northern parts of Sweden With a Nikon D300s and a Nikon 400mm lens F2,8 and a Nikon TC-17E II teleconverter.

I had maximum zoom at this picture which means 1020mm :) and i still cropped it as much as i could

This is to Male wolves. I like this picture it shows clearly that they are aware of my presence and a very vigilant and cautious...

If you like pictures of foxes Lynx or Wolves, wolverines 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 :)


Sincerely

Pali

The background looks a little too soft--I dunno if you can fix that? But I still love it. (:

:) you think its to soft hmm i will keep that in mind until next time.. i could undo the softness a bit but not much on this picture

SentiumVII Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Well, it's the thought that counts. xD
Yeah, I mean, there are blurry backgrounds that work for some pictures, focused backgrounds, and then there are the soft backgrounds. In this case, soft doesn't really work here... I dunno if blurry would do? Eesh, I'm no photographer... I'm just giving you some ideas, haha. I can only guess at this stuff. I wish I could be more help though. ):

Mmm you did good, I like the quality better in full view. Their furs really do blend into the backround. very cool.

But, i'd like to see some wolves in action if you can, because I know its really hard to get some action out of wolves when they're in the wild and you try to keep a safe distance away (keep doing that). But most pictures are the wolves staring back you, almost daring you to challenge them, or looking at the camera curiously, wondering why your there, which is cool. And I love it! But you don't want to continuesly do that, you want them lying down in the snow, trotting off somewhere.

But thats just my opinion... And im sorry if it came out snobbish/rude, I didnt intend to sound that way if I did.. But yes, good picture Pali, I really like that Racoon wolf. :3

Thank you !!

first of al you are not snobbish or rude just so we get that out of the way.. I like it :)

And you are right wild wolves don't fight and move around as much as the captive once the conserve energy because they don't know when they will get food next time and they are not as restless as the captive once the has to release energy..

I have allot of shots of wolves sitting and laying down but we are in the forest so there is trouble with the composition as branches and trees in the way :)that hide parts of the wolf...

And when the are close to me the are nervous and on the edge then they always watch every move i make and almost never let their eyes of me :)

But just because you are so nice i will post a picture with 3 wolves laying down :) but they are looking at me i hope you don't mind

Thank you for this comment

Sincerely
P

Ah ok, I was worried about that, thank you. (:

Yes, I guessed as much once I was done writing that unsympathetic comment. Sorry.

Ah ok, I bet there still great photo's though. :)

Well, I guess you can't blame them for being wary eh?

D'aw, thank you Pali. I really appreciate that. And thats fine, I dont mind at all.
