Although buds most of the time, sometimes even your best buddy can get under your skin a bit. In this case it looks like it is a bit more than under the skin.

This was taken at the Brookfield Zoo in Brookfield, Illinois. A bitter cold January morning. The temperature was slightly below zero degrees fahrenheit.

Maybe due to the cold, one of the fellas thought he should heat things up. :-)

    Great capture Scott!

  • Thanks.

    To get the feel I wanted I did have to crop this in a bit. Still…combine my 30D with the quality of the 400mm…not a problem at all.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    It’s all about hierarchies for the wolves. Intimidating looking animals for sure.
