Eyes of the Hunter by Lupinicious Eyes of the Hunter by Lupinicious
Here's a rather rare shot of the alpha male of the Sababurg pack being playful. At times, when in a playful mood, some wolves might act like they are completely crazy, making weird movements, pulling grass out of the ground, running in tight circles, zig-zagging like a rabbit, to attract other wolves to join in. The alpha here did all that and now takes off flat-out to have the other wolves chase him. You can still see the blade of grass that he ripped out seconds before, falling to the ground.

This is a GREAT shot! The clear, crisp focus highlights the intense facial expression and the wolf really pops out of the grassy background. It's an awesome capture of a manic moment that really shows the chaos of motion and the intensity of purpose.

Beautiful animal, I'd love to see wolf pack on my own eyes. Sadly It's much more easy to say than to do ~

IS that a wolf? It looks a bit like a coyote, but I dunno...

I thought the same thing. Looks like a small wolf or a big yote. I assume they know what theyre talking about but yotes are also known as brush wolves so maybe it is a yote being called a wolf cause of that

No, this is definitely a wolf :-) It's a Eurasian Wolf (Canis lupus lupus), and this particular wolf is rather big in fact. I dunno how it looks small to you, but an average Eurasian wolf stands only 65-90 cm (2-3 feet) high at the shoulder, with a total length (including tail) of 135-200 cm (4.5-6.5 ft). He looks a bit squished in this picture because his head is lowered, but that's all. I can assure you it's not a Coyote, which would be odd in any case because Coyotes are not native to Europe, and none of the zoos I know keeps Coyotes either. ;-)
