Coastal

I don’t think you can get a better picture to define Coastal Grey Wolves than this image.  With the water, mossy rocks, and downed tree covered in moss and fucus, this is the perfect coastal landscape for this wolf to stop and pose, and have a look at us.

 

I love the look of this Coastal Wolf, especially how it stands out against the backdrop that it is posed in front of.  It is very light colored, I think maybe the lightest wolf that I have ever photographed, and for a Coastal Wolf had way less reddish/brown on it then the other few I have seen.

 

Unlike the Grey Wolves that live on the mainland, the Coastal Grey Wolves have diets that significantly consist of things that live in the oceans like seals, and salmon.  This one was on a mission of some sort, and didn’t stop to look for food, other than to sniff after a mink that had run by.
