Photo of the Day - Black Wolf

Since my wife jokingly chastised me last night for yesterday's 'Photo of the Day' being a spring photograph of an avocet, I am reverting to fall/winter shots for the next little while to appease her.  Today's photo celebrates our first big dump of snow here in the Rockies (10 cm last night!), which usually means I'm out looking for wolves somewhere or other.  This year has been particularly tough so far and I'm a weak 0-for, as in 0 for 11 in going out searching for wolves.  But that's pretty typical for wolf photography, you can go out for 20 straight days and see nothing, but that one magical day may be the 21st, so you head right back out and try again!

Faith, the female leader of the Pipestone wolf pack in Banff, Yoho and Kootenay National Parks

Last year I spent more than forty days in the field looking for wolves and had just two good days of photography.  This image above was from one of those days; this is Faith, the leading female of the Pipestone wolf family from about 20 km north of Herbert Lake on the Icefields Parkway.

Hope you enjoy the photo!
