Sometimes I get lucky. I found this pack of wolves howling very close to the road in Yellowstone's Hayden Valley. They were howling at two other packs that I could hear in the distance as they answered this pack. There were 9 wolves in this pack and hearing 9 wolves howl at close range is something I will never forget. I removed the ugly radio collars from two of these wolves using Photoshop Elements.
National Geographic Magazine asked for a copy of this photo(with radio collars) for possible publication, and then didn't use it in their last month's Wolf Wars story. Maybe they don't like radio collars either.
I have a lot of wolf photos. I will try to post one every Wednesday on this blog. Wolf Wednesday for those who like wolves.
