Unimpressed

This Grey Wolf that I photographed last summer in Banff National Park looks really unimpressed as he passes me by.  You could come up with all kinds of stories about why the wolf would not be impressed, but maybe that’s just the way he looks, or the moment I captured, and he really doesn’t feel unimpressed at all.

 

This wolf was part of the Banff National Park Bow Valley Pack, which according to recent reports is now down to just 2 members, both of which have left the Bow Valley and gone and joined another pack. Unfortunately 2016 & 2017 was a year full of human-caused deaths for members of the pack, including 4 of the pups being killed on the train tracks that run through their territory.  Hopefully in their new location they can thrive without the interruption of humans.
