Default the alpha

this red wolf was clearly the alpha of the group... he wasn't pleased when one of the others tried to approach, and he made no bones about showing it! taken at the Point Defiance zoo in Tacoma, WA. the red wolf, originally native to the southeastern US, was declared extinct in the wild in 1980, and the Point Defiance Zoo has been breeding them and slowly reintroducing them to the wild since the early 1990s. it is estimated that there are still only about 300 red wolves remaining in the world, and slightly more than 200 of those are in captivity. the zoo's "species restoration" project has a ways to go... shot through glass at a distance of about 30 feet. 5D2, 24-105 @ 105mm, 1/250 @ f/8, ISO 1600


Out where the rivers like to run, I stand alone, and take back something worth remembering...

Love the shot, thought he was growling at you in the wild. Not sure I would want to meet him in the wild.
Comments always welcome.
