This shot was not taken in the wild, it was taken at the Lakota wolf preserve in Columbia NJ. As fierce as this looks, it really was just a family squabble, daddy reminding his son who is in charge. At no time were either one of the wolves in danger and none of them were hurt. It was an amazing thing to see and I had a great time photographing them. About the lens, at the time I did not own a zoom lens for that camera, I was really that close! If you would like more info on the preserve you can find them at lakotawolf.com

    This is an awesome shot and a bit scary! Is this in the wild and how did you get close enough - it had to be with a powerful long lens!

    Wow! Very good shot and perfect for the theme Frenzy...The son who is bowing his head appears submissive in his mannerism to his father scolding him.

    Great shot! Brilliant! Reminds me of my two german shepherds having a lively debate over who gets a toy. :-) (they love each other but that's how they talk) Thanks for sharing this wonderful shot!

    Awesome shot! I've been to the Lakota Wolf Preserve. It's an awesome place. While I wasn't able to photograph them we did get them to howl.
