I was pleasantly surprised to see this image win the Photo Of The Day. Thank you all for the kind comments! Who would have thought that one day of shooting images at the Wildlife Science Center would be so productive. Three images were submitted from that day of shooting yielding two photos of the day and one photo of the month. Thanks to the judges and those of you who took time to comment on my image. If you are interested in photographing the wolves at the Wildlife Science Center it costs $75/hour and the money helps support this non-profit, see their website for more details:
Many Thanks. Regards, Jake #2737855
