The Gray Wolf (Canis lupus)

The picture was taken in a national park in the northern parts of Sweden in Winter 2011. With a Nikon D700 and a Nikon 600mm lens F4 and a Nikon TC-17E II teleconverter.

To read more about the wolf [link]

I have just seen a Tv program about wolves and they were portrayed as ruthless killers that sit in the dark woods and wait to kill and pillage farms animals and people...

Wolves are not vicious killers they really dont deserve the bad reputation....

Michael Jackson said it best

" If You Wanna Make The World A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And Then Make A Change"

This picture in my opinion is very nice. The eyes really capture your attention even though they are not center, which gives it a more interesting look about it. If I were you however I would have cut the wolf a little closer to the edge for a more pronounced off kilter look. Other then that I find nothing in the way of changed. the fur contrasts amazingly with the snow, and you can see almost every little flake that is embedded in this wolf's hair. I think the blurred back ground makes you focus on the wolf as a whole and not anywhere else, giving it a better impact. All in all, I really cannot wait to see more of your photography, this is truly amazing.
What do you think?

I agree. It does capture your attention but it almost captures the personality of the wolf himself through his eyes. It's almost if he's smiling at the camera and noticing that you're there, then he lets his peacefully amazing side come out...
Truly an inspirational piece while capturing the realistic nature of the wolves and how they possibly treat one another while also taking in his curiosity he gives away.
Wolves don't deserve the horrible depiction that they are given and it should be
I adore this photography and it's something I look forward to seeing more of.
