dogilicious from Millerstown, PA, United States

Very beautiful collection of shots. They are very inspirational animals. A principal I used to work for would draw comparisons between adolescent group behavior and wolf pack behavior. Very interesting.

@dogilicious: That's cool. The wolf are very social animals. They even mate for life!

Photosanity from Folsom, United States

You have captured the power and majesty well in this photo - the eyes are fixated on something - glad its not me :-). Not sure if you are aware but there is a movement in the US to take the wolves off the endangered list. This means that wolves that travel out of Yellowstone could be shot by local ranchers. Sorry to make a sort of political statement but if you are against that and want to try to help - go to and send out a letter to share your voice in the effort to leave them on the endangered list.

15 Apr 2009 9:57pm

@Photosanity: YES, you are so right! Thank you for the web site!! I was not sure about saying that myself. I could add a lot more about how wolves are hunted and killed in Alaska, etc. but don't get me started. ;-) Thanks for caring about them.
