Winter isn't done! This was take back during the Memorial Day holiday where the weekend welcomed West Yellowstone with some more snow. The wolves were still sporting winter coats so it wasn't such a bad thing.
The ravens had a lot of fun with the snow.

Just as long as you provide a citation from where you got the image from and don't claim it as your own, I'll be okay with it. what kind of book project is it if it's okay for me to ask?

the wolf is gorgeous! :) I like how he/she is all "fluffy" and then those skinny legs out of them ^^

Great shot. I like the negative space in this. Is that a fence I see in the background running across the middle of the picture?

DeeOtter Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
It could be. It is a captive wolf so there may be some fencing in some places.
It's realllly noticeable int he bear habitats

Gotcha. Yeah I was wondering what a vertical crop of this shot would look like. If that is fencing, a vertical crop would take it almost entirely out of the frame and bring focus in on the wolf. Either way, nice shot. :)

I do have a few pictures of just the wolf in the snowiness.
It was shot from the indoor viewing (lots more fence from the outside viewing) so I was mostly concerned about myself posing in silly ways to reduce the reflections on the glass.

lol I can understand that. Trying to do photography through glass/bars/fencing can be like a contact sport. I came back from the San Antonio Zoo this weekend with scrapes and bruises from all the contortions I was doing to minimize glare. Sometimes just getting the shot is the reward. ;)

I don't think I've come back from a zoo adventure with such abrasions.
I have asked really awesome visitors that are wearing really dark colors to stand where they are standing for 10 more seconds so I could get a few more pictures because they provided an awesome reflection block.
Same works for people in neon colored jackets (like highlighter color green/orange) except I'd like them to scoot over a bit.
