Wild Wolves of Yellowstone - Wall Art

A collection of my own experiences with wild wolves in Yellowstone National Park taken over many years. These are all chance encounters in the wild- ie no captive animals. They were all taken with respect and consideration for the animals and were taken with long telephoto lenses so as to not intrude into their space as set by Park minimum distance policy. The wolf reintroduction program that began in 1995 is probably the best conservation program ever established. Wolves were hunted and persecuting immensely and had been completely exterminated from Yellowstone National Park by the 1930s. To be able to see wild wolves in Yellowstone now is an experience to treasure forever. I had been very fortunate to capture imagery of some of the most 'famous' individual wolves of reintroduction history- including pictures of the Druid Peak Pack alphas 21M and 42F. And along came the Agate alpha 113M- who "led from the rear", another truly beloved wolf. The "White Wolf" of the Canyon Pack, the alpha female 540F, with her distinctive light colored fur, wandered mostly in the Hayden Valley of Yellowstone, and was the wonder for myriads of tourists. I encountered here one snowy day in late fall and took portrait photographs from beside my car. At the time, the Park's legal distance to stay away was 25 yards (now it's 100 yards), so with my big telephoto I got a wonderful portrait of her. I could go on and on, but hopefully my pictures here will inspire the viewer with wonder also.
