Sorry I haven't been uploading anything for the past few weeks! I have been very busy with the Lupinity Wolves 2014 calendar, but now it's finally available on Amazon UK and Amazon Germany, with free shipping to most EU countries and everything :D I'll cover the details in a journal later on...

So here's finally a new upload, one of the photos I took 1 1/2 weeks ago at Wildpark Alte Fasanerie. I just love those arctics, they are awesome :-) Despite very hot temperatures, they were following me around, being all playful, and they were taking a dip in the pond once in a while - although they seemed to be much more reluctant to do so than they were one year ago when they were still yearlings...

Here are two of the two-year-olds interacting nicely. The one jumping out of the water was fetching some kind of stick swimming in the pond and was trying to take off with it, getting past the other wolf. But he was being vigilant :D

I had my camera and lens sent in to CPS because they did a recall on the 1DX for irregular greasing of the AF mechanism which could lead to a camera failure... and I discovered they also have a firmware update available for the 400mm f/2.8 II fixing some issues with a jumpy focus drive. I can't say the camera's focus works much better, but now if it gets a focus lock, it focusses more spot-on than it did before - which especially came in handy for this particular shot :-) It's really tack-sharp and there's no visible noise in the whole picture... it loses a lot by shrinking it down though, you should see it in full size :-)

Absolutely gorgeous as always! I love how natural it and silly they are. :>

Hey, have you ever considered printing a wolf photography book of sorts??
