Gray Wolf captured by Z 9 / 180-400VR

Before the “pack” got really close to us (a couple of hundred yards, I was shooting at 560mm at this point), they pulled up and stop. I think they were sizing up the situation as they caught their breath. You look at this black wolf, you can see the frozen breath on its lower mandible, it was -19 after all. The Bison were up the Madison by the bridge at this point. Looking at a snow coach coming up the road, it watched it approach, looked at other members of the pack, and just stared. I have no doubt they knew we were there but it would seem as we weren’t moving, trying to catch our own breathes, we were a non-issue. Then with a nod of the head by a few members, they made their move that took me by surprise. mtc
