I have photographed wolves for many years and have never gotten close enough to get such an intimate portrait as this. This photograph was made at a wolf conservation area where I was allowed to spend the entire day closely among wild wolves. This alpha male was the only wolf that would look directly into the camera. No matter how you view this image his eyes will follow you.
As I sat quietly and watched I felt the spirit of thousands of years of wildness surround me. Spend some time with this photo of the "Alpha Male" and you too will feel the spirit.
