I love that strategical move this wolves have. They are just adorable when they move. So carefully, each step is carefully taken step. Like an action plan. Very corporate behavior.

@Veronelle: Wolves are not so dangerous to people. They get a bad rap. Thanks. Glad you like it.

@mariana: Thanks. Only bears and big cats are predators of humans. Wolf are not so dangerous to man (or photographers). ;-)

Kathe from Marquette, Michigan, United States

Absolutely wonderful photos! I agree that wolves are not so dangerous. I'd be more afraid of a raccoon than I would a wolf - or even more than a bear or big cat. *LOL*

Are these all captive wolves?

12 Apr 2009 9:41pm

@Kathe: They are in a sanctuary with lots of room to roam or get away from someone with a camera. ;-)

the wonderfully captured photos are complimented very well by the quotes and stories; i agree - not dangerous, rather misunderstood; beautiful series - i look forward to seeing more
