Alpha and Omega III by Lupinicious Alpha and Omega III by Lupinicious
Despite the name, this one is a prequel to the other two photos of the "series" - it's not really a series either, since this has been taken a week earlier, where we had sunny weather.

But the subject is never-ending: the omega male (in front) defending himself against the attacks of the alpha female (in the back).

Usually I am not a fan of motion-blur, but in this case I found it acceptable, as I think it suits the mood of the photo.

More of this "series":

Oh my god before I read the description I thought the Alpha was the one in front XD I didn't know Omega's could be so vicious.

Like my younger brother always beats me and my even younger brother for the past 5 years!
Worst-case scenario, I will inject my brother with a tranquilizer while he is on a rampage.

I'm curious as to why the female drove off the other females? For one, how did she do it? Secondly, why did the other wolves not react to it? And thirdly, why did she do it? I'm unfamiliar with wolf behaviors..

Female wolves usually don't want any competitors in the pack, so they are pretty serious about it. How she did it? Basically she killed them (or hurt them so badly that they had to be put to sleep, I don't know any details). Why did the other wolves not react? It's none of their business, and getting into that stuff might get themselves into trouble too. Chances are they will join the alpha in picking on the victims rather.

Waw. I wasn't aware how agressive wolves are.. I guess I should take it more serious when I go on walks in trails, not to walk into a pack.

Well, this is intraspecific aggression which is highly ritualized. This is also due to the captive setting - omegas are non-existent in the wild.
Nevertheless, wolves like any other wild animal are unpredictable and as such you should always be careful not to walk into any wild animal :-) However, wolves will usually notice you long before you notice them and they will make sure to keep a safe distance.

The omega in this shot doesn't even look like he has a neck. >_>

I feel sorry for the omega, you can see something in his eyes, in all of the pictures, a kind of animalistic panic like he doesn't understand

I also think the blur really adds to the shot here, particularly because the rest is so in focus. Again, it's a stunning capture with the movement and expressions of the wolves.

For an omega he is pretty agressive against the alpha x3

Well, she has before and after, however the photos were not really usable, since she tends to run over other wolves, kick them with their hips and such, which results in a huge furball but nothing that looks really good on a photo ;-)

aaw but wolf fight photos are just great x3
The ones I rarely get before my lens are behind a dirty glass and they just walk around... always... *yawn* xD

Haha, it can be worse: sometimes they just lay around and sleep... always :D
In any case you have to be patient. Just stick around for a couple of hours.
