A barricade crossing in front of my path while in Kootenay National Park. Wolves are one of my favorite animals to photograph, not only because they are beautiful, but also because I am having a very good (and lucky) day if I actually see one. Wolves are quite elusive and seen less often than my other favorite predator, the Grizzly Bear. This Wolf had quite a different color pattern than most I see, with more black/white/grey, and even more remarkable is that it looks like it is wearing a black mask.
This Wolf only stuck around for seconds allowing me this one decent shot before trotting off into the woods, not to be seen again, but the memory still stays with me.
