Taken in Quebec, Canada

This is a pair of Alpha Wolves. He was staying close to her as she was in heat and there was another male that was looking to mate with her. She showed her preference for this male many times by snapping at the competitor. This shot was of a resting period, one of very few they had most of the day.

    It’s a great shot of these two Michael! But I have no idea where this Park Omega is. So can you be a bit more specific about where you took the shot so we can accept it in the WNP&W group? Thanks!

  • Opps, sorry meant to put that in.

    Precious capture. Shows a side of the wolf people don’t realize is there.

  • There is a definite affection between these two, it was amazing to see how deep it went, how pure it was.
