Artic wolves at Amneville Zoo, France.

The Arctic Wolf (Canis lupus arctos), also called Polar Wolf or White Wolf, is a mammal of the Canidae family, and a subspecies of the Gray Wolf. It is often confused with the Tundra Wolf (Canis lupus albus), which can be found throughout northern Europe and Asia. Arctic Wolves inhabit the Canadian Arctic and the northern parts of Greenland.

Hi Mike, this is a good capture of the 2 wolves. I like your composition, and how they are standing there. It is very interesting to see their colours.
Did you see them in a zoo?

Hi Mike,
This is a very nice double-portrait. Depth-of-field looks sufficient at this size. I like the color and the detail on the fur.
Best wishes,

très belle pose, Mike Tu as, comme souvent, su attendre le moment crucial poûr déclencher.

A cliché, I know, but this is a picture perfect pose ! Terrific compostion, it captures the tight, family unity of the wolf pack. Good DOF, I like the way the wolf on the right is just a wee bit out of focus, it keeps the image from being 'flat'. Sorry, but I don't have the technical expertise/knowledge to describe that better, hope you know what I mean.
