Mexican wolf photographed at Living Desert Zoo and Gardens State Park, Carlsbad, New Mexico. This subordinate male is rising to greet the alpha male that is approaching from his left…razor sharp and clear image using large file size.

One-hundred percent of the profit from this image goes back back to the wolves.

“Living Desert participates in the American Zoo and Aquarium Association’s Mexican gray wolf Species Survival Program, exchanging wolves with other zoological facilities to help ensure their survival.”

Good News: There are several areas in Mexico and the United States where Mexican wolves are being reintroduced…please support these efforts.

I started out as an artist, became a pilot, and ended up where I am now: nature photographer and educator. Being a pilot allowed me to observe the Earth and humanity’s impact on it from 30,000 feet for many years. It allowed me to experience different cultures and to see the world through many lenses.

    Emotive photography William… great capture but makes me a bit sad.

    Stunning shot, and I agree with Vicki above. It almost makes me cry. This is how my dog looks when he’s really depressed. Perhaps he wants to run free (don’t we all?)
