Deep Snow, Big Wolf
These wolves were part of a pack that were hunting deer and elk.
I don't know why this species is persecuted to the extent that it is, makes no sense.
Black "Grey Wolf"
Grey Wolves come in a variety of colors.
Litter of Coyotes
Wolf In Snowstorm
Wolf with his Bone
I witnessed a pack of coyotes playing and sliding down this hillside for the sheer pleasure of it.
Coyote has found something of interest to eat in frozen winter landscape.
Wolf at -40
The sun had set when I encountered a pack of wolves. The blue cast is consistent with the situation.
Wolf In Profile
A beautiful grey wolf in the foothills of Alberta on a glorious fall day.
Parting shots of the hind end of animals are usually bound for the delete bin, but I liked the sense of fleeting escape I think this image conveys.
Who knows what an intelligent animal like the grey wolf feels when he looks at us humans.
A family of cross fox hunted along the roadside for a few weeks one summer; sadly I don't see them anymore.
This coyote is so excited about something he is literally floating off the ground.
Beautiful wolf, I felt honoured to be in his presence.
This fox was really moving, he didn't seem to care that I was sitting in my vehicle looking at him.
Cross Fox Vole Hunting
This fox was struggling in the deep snow. I have seen fox in the same area for several years, interesting how they seem to have preferred areas to den and hunt.
I witnessed a pack of wolves moving through a well known bighorn sheep hangout. The wolves moved off the Athabasca River, over the flats and up into the rocky highlands before disappearing into the dense forest.
Can't decide if this is my favourite predator species, they are all so amazing. I have seen lynx on other occasions but this has been my only good photo opportunity.
The river seems to be preferred habitat for coyotes in the winter.
The deep snow didn't seem to slow this wolf's progress very much.
A Striking Pose
This wolf didn't seem too concerned about my presence.
On The Move
A quick glance in my direction as this wolf moved past me.
Looking Into An Uncertain Future
Wolves are hunted aggressively, this one just wanted me to take his pic.
A beautiful sight to witness a wolf moving through fresh snow in the boreal forest.
Great fun to chew on aspen leaves and taunt your sister.
Thick Winter Coat
Ready for a long cold winter with this dense coat
