I see you can't edit the title which should have been Mixican Wolf!

Spent Easter in Arizona and enjoyed the warm weather along with the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum just outside of Tucson. It was a great place to see wildlife in the open and was a fun place to take photos, and only a couple of hours from Scottsdale where I was staying..

This is a Mexican Wolf taking a break in the shade shot with the 300mm on the K20D.

Interesting pose--looks like he is licking his chops after a meal!! Tremendous detaill from that 300 mm. I wonder how the DA*300 f/4 compares to your version? How much cropping?

One more of your goodies from one of your goodie lenses. I'll soon post some from my F* 300mm, basically the same lens.

Great shot Tom.
How do you know he's Mexican, does he speak Spanish? :G

Excellent picture! When we were there the Mexican wolves were pacing all around their enclosure. I was amazed at how effortlessly they move, and how fast/constant they are. My photos of them were poor quality compared to this one - very nice!

The Arizona Sonora Desert Museum is definitely a must-see place for anyone in that part of Arizona. We spent a day there and didn't come close to seeing it all - someday we'll go back.

Terrific picture! What did you say to him to make him stick his tongue out at you?

Very nice. It's a good thing you had the 300mm with teeth like that! Yikes!

Hmmm! Seems like you're a little keyboard challenged today! :-)

Good thing it hasn't hampered your shooting!!

These Mexican wolves seem to be everywhere -- not too bad considering how close to extinction they once were. At Brookfield Zoo (Chicago's biggest) they have built a huge environment for them, and they're one of the feature exhibits, but they rarely get close enough for shots like this.

Just bought my retirement home in Mesa, AZ-had enough of the endless New Hampshirewinters & snow up to your waist. Have spent a lot of time in AZ-unlimited photo ops!
