Excellant shot! You were lucky to get this shot! Telephoto or just brave. Getting that close to a white wolf in Yellowstone isn't easy. Karyl Dalbey #6426137

Oh my... very well done! I really have but a single suggestion to offer (like I could've done better. Yeah, right): perhaps just a bit across the bottom and along the right edge. I feel that given the direction of the drifting snow and the and wolf's stare, it would make for a better composition.

But wow! Every other aspect is just mind blowing! I love it! #6426249
