Snow Gets In Your Eyes – Gray Wolf in Yellowstone
Snow Gets in Your Eyes, Prone Gray Wolf in Snow, West Yellowstone, MT 2010
Living in South Florida it is easy to forget that other parts of the world are being snowed upon. Although I understand this has been a particularly mild winter throughout the U.S., I decided to get in one last (previously shot) snow image before Spring.
Although my usual animal images are close-up, intimate portraits, every once in a while I can’t resist an environmental portrait. This gray wolf took the sudden snowfall in stride, sleeping on and off and occasionally peeking out to see what was going on. Living with other wolves in a beautiful West Yellowstone refuge, these animals could not be re-introduced into the wild for various reasons and live a good life less than a mile away from Yellowstone National Park.
