Another shot of beautiful Arctic Wolf I found in the Omega Parc located near Montebello, Quebec, Canada. Here is more about this animal from Wikipedia:

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.

The Arctic Wolf and the Timber Wolf are the only subspecies of the Gray Wolf that still can be found over the whole of its original range; largely because in their natural habitat they rarely encounter humans.

The White Wolf Sanctuary is a refuge for arctic wolves located in Oregon. The average population of wolves in the sanctuary is 8-10 over 40 acres, all of which are rescued wolves who were injured, unwanted or abandoned.

Hi Varahram. This is a good shot of the Wolf. Good compostion and POV. with great detail and colour. he has his eyes on somthing. well done TFS. Nick..

This is a beautiful capture of this beautiful, healthy looking animal. It is technically and compositionally excellent. It could be made into a poster. I just recently learned of the white wolf sanctuary here in Oregon. I'll have to check it out one day.

Evelynn : )

indeed beautiful, TFS Ori

Great picture with nice colors and very good sharpness.
I like your pov and the positioning of the wolf.
