[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These two wolves had just finished a bit of a dominance dispute and decided to kiss and make-up.Shot at Omega Parc, 5 minutes from Montebello in Quebec, which is a 1500 acre enclosure, but all very wild and natural. The park is open all year 10 am. Closing times vary with the seasons. Note that this is a drive through park and you must stay in your vehicle at all times, however, Diane Skinner has arrangements to take photographers through, in at sunrise out at sunset, and you will be allowed out of your vehicle to shoot.

Hello Paul !
So they "kiss" to make up - well, that sounds very human ! :-) Your picture is great, showing the strong ties that exist between two members of the same group. Sharpness, details, colors, composition, POV, everything is just perfect, and this park you speak of in your note must be fantastic to visit. COngratulations for this wonderful shot !

Nice moment .. great exposure the get all the whites right.


Hello Paul
This is one of those images where words like ooh, aah, they are cute, aren’t they adorable?, I also want one, I would like to cuddle them and plenty more enters your mind when you look at it. This is really such a wonderful capture with lots of feeling to it. The contact captured between these two wolves is truly something special. A very special scene captured and shared. Kind regards
