Alpha

Getting the opportunity to see a coastal wolf is a rare and exciting opportunity. To get the chance to see the alpha male of a coastal wolf pack was simply amazing, especially while he barked/and howled at us in order to let us know that he is the boss of this island.

 

We were setup before sunrise hoping to see wolves, and when they came around the point of the island about 1km away they immediately knew we were there, and ran over to check us out, and let us know who is in charge.

 

This photo was taken with my new Canon EOS R6, one of the new mirrorless cameras from Canon, and I think it really did it’s job, and I was thankful for the in body stabilization while hand-holding the lens at 1/250.
