Last winter, I had the opportunity to photograph wolves and what made this experience so special was that it right after a big snow storm.  The snow created a beautiful background.  My favorite subject was the beautiful arctic gray wolf, Canis lupus arctos, with it’s beautiful light, almost white coat.  Amazingly, they actually have two layers of fur and the outer portion of their thick fur coat gets even thicker as winter approaches to help keep them warm.  They are very territorial. The best part of the shoot was at the end of the day as the wolves began howling.
