Image taken December 26, 2010

I spent the better part of six hours sitting in the cold at the Brookfield Zoo attempting to get some nice shots of the new pack of eight Mexican Wolves.

The Brookfield Zoo is part of over 40 facilities participating in a reintroduction program for the most endangered North American wolf, the Mexican Wolf.

The Mexican Wolf is a subspecies of the Grey Wolf and America’s smallest wolf. According to Defenders of Wildlife there are about 50 wolves in the wild as of 2008.

The eight at Brookfield consist of 5 females and 3 males. The females are in heat and due to all the wolves being related, they have been separated.

    fantastic shot. what/who was he growling at?

  • Thank you very much. She is actually growling at her sister. This poor gal lived the entire day with her tail tucked and being treated like an outcast. I sure hope her whole life is not that crappy.

    I just bought this lens hope I can get a shot half as good as this well done Scott..

  • Excellent investment. I love this lens. It is a little slow at f5.6 but carry a steady tripod and you should be golden. Someday I would like the 500mm f/4 but until then, I am very happy with this lens.

    Thanks for your comment. I hope you can come back and view some of my other work.
