Tiergarten Worms . 01.11.2012 . european wolf . male
____________________________________

... when a wolf really sees you and takes a short look into your soul. This was mine with the wolves from Worms.
Normally, zoo wolves (not wolves from wildlife parks as Klein-Auheim) are in a way very dull, even if they look into your camera, their soul seems to be far away. But sometimes there are special moments, when they seem to wake up and I love to get the chance to photograph this.

Alte Fasanerie Klein-Auheim . 27.09.2012 . arctic wolf . 17 month old . Inuq
_____________________________________

I really adore Inuq and his expressions. Here he chases a bubble, and the strong sun reminds me on warm summer days. But since I photograph wolves, I've learned to love the winter when wolves are active like this and it's cold enough for them to have fun.

Tiergarten Worms . 01.11.2012 . european wolf . male
____________________________________

An autumnal portrait of the alpha from the pack in Worms. His eyes really have this dark orange colour as I've never seen it before in a wolf's face. In reality, it wasn't as facinating for me as it's on the photos - his eyes came out like dark amber :heart:
I'm looking forward to see these wolves again in one week. And I hope so much, that there will be snow *.* Keep your fingers crossed!

Alte Fasanerie Klein-Auheim . 31.10.2012 . arctic wolf . 18 month old . Monja
_____________________________________

Sorry guys for being so inactive the last days. University is driving me up the wall - too much projects and stuff to think of. Also it's getting closer and closer to christmas and I never know where the time goes by in this season.

Nevertheless Klein-Auheim has to be visited and it already seems to be to long ago when I was there the last time. At this day, I tried the first time to use my 50 mm lens to photograph the wolves. In Zoos, 50 mm is normally too damn less to photograph animals, but the wolves in Klein-Auheim love to come near to the fence, so it's possible to shoot some nice pics with a lens with less mm than my normal 400 mm. I like the softness which it creates and it defeats the darkness - that's even greater.
Monja was in a playful mood and invited my companion to blow some bubbles and bring her fun :aww:

Tierpark Hellabrunn, München . 23.11.2012 . european wolf . alpha male
____________________________________

I'm back from my vacations ^_^ Finally I've been to Hellabrunn, after I had visited Munich so often but never got the chance to visit the zoo. It was a great day, the zoo was nearly empty and the animals interested and interesting. I was pleasantly surprised about the nice and often quite big enclosures and all in all Hellabrunn is worth a visit.
Three european wolves live there. Sadly I think, that they are a bit unsettled but it wasn't too ambigous. Only the alpha male always looked so worried. Some of his markings let him look like he is always agonizing. Poor Alpha :meow:

Wildpark Lüneburger Heide . 05.05.2012 . european wolf . Filou
_____________________________________

Sorry, not really creative title but in fact, I don't know, why Filou stood there with his ears turned back. There've been nothing special or ominous. But it was a nice pose and the bokeh in the background is great.
I was a little bit shocked, 'cause all four european wolves looked so old. Haven't been there for one year and in 2011 they were really nice wolves. Now ... mh ... they wasn't so nice. But maybe the change from winter to summer coat have made them look a bit crushed.

Wildpark Lüneburger Heide . 05.05.2012 . timber wolf . Ole
_____________________________________

You may remember Ole, the most handsome guy in town -> [link] ? :meow: This is him again, in the hunt for ... well ... it felt a little bit like if he wished to hunt us. He was quite nervous, ran towards us and stopped directly in front just to stood there looking biiiig and baaaad. I think, it was very good, that there was a thick pane between visitors and wolves ^^'' Even though wolves are amazing, beautiful and in so many cases just friendly, cute and lovable you should never forget, that they are wild animals.

Tiergarten Worms . 01.11.2012 . european wolf . female
____________________________________

I've discovered a new place to photograph wolves :aww: Worms is closer to my home than Klein-Auheim and the five european wolves who live here, are quite beautiful. Especially their eyes are great, so bright and sometimes yellow, sometimes dark amber. I'm looking forward to meet them again ^.^

Here you can see a female from the pack, not the alpha. They've been awaiting their food and have been quite psyched. Of course, some little skirmishs took place, and in one of them, this great eyed wolf had to pacify.

Alte Fasanerie Klein-Auheim . 27.09.2012 . european wolf . five month old . Hagen
_____________________________________

... is fun! Puppies always prove this truth :meow: The little euopeans in Klein-Auheim have grown so much. You remember little Hagen? Two month ago, he looked like this: But ... I want the leaf! Now he's nearly a big wolf but still has nothing rational in mind. His outside appearance is just a camouflage ;)

Alte Fasanerie Klein-Auheim . 27.09.2012 . arctic wolves . 17 month old . Inuq, Aslan and Monja
_____________________________________

I really like pictures of running wolves, especially when they have so much fun meanwhile. Here you can see the three youngsters from Klein-Auheim like always chasing new bubbles and cannot getting fast enough back to the source.
I like Monjas pose and how it seems as if she calls Aslan to run faster :meow:

I wish you all a nice second Advent weekend and as much anticipation on christmas as I have :aww:
