Da Boyz by Lupinicious Da Boyz by Lupinicious
As the year is preparing to come to an end, the wolves are already getting grumpier. Today was quite spectacular already at Tierpark Sababurg and the were a couple of quarrels going on on all levels of the hierarchy.

The weather was awesome today - not a single cloud in the sky - but this is also the weather that photographers love and hate at the same time, especially in a forest setting like this. The sunny patches are usually too bright and the shadows too dark, so you have to use a fill flash to brighten up the scene. With this photo, unfortunately, the flash had a little to much power so it looks a bit like a studio shot :D It brightened up their eyes nicely tho *g*

Even if it looks like the left wolf (he's the omega of the pack... and such a handsome one too!) is snarling at me, he actually had an argument with the dominant wolf on the right. It was kinda lucky to have them both take their time to look in the camera at that point... so I thought I'd upload it :-)

So meet da boyz :D

It looks like the one on the left lost the argument. That expression is wolf for "You're pissing me off. Go away." He's also really hunched over and doesn't look too confident about it.

It's almost as if he's saying "I -AM- smiling!" as the one on the right has that smug little smile going as well.
very awesome shot though :)

You can tell that the one on the left isn't angry because of the way his ears are flattened back, showing submission or fear. He's probably signaling that he's afraid, but he will defend himself. =)

The one looks like he could just attack something at any time while the one on the right actually looks crossed eyed to me.

Thank you, I actually got a bunch of these today. In winter it's pretty easy to get such shots, but it's unusual to see them so active at this time of year already.
