It is always a challenge to photograph wolves in the wild. They are elusive and want nothing to do with humans. This was my day, as I watched and photographed, from a great distance, this alpha female and her 6 new pups. 3 pups were grey and 3 were black. They put on quite a show as I burned through roll after roll of film. Then, I noticed a grizzly meandering through the wolves territory feeding. As the bear got closer to the wolves, the mother made a stand, staring down the grizzly. They played a little cat and mouse chasing each other until the bear tired of the game and moved on. It is rare to photograph a grizzly and wolf together.
