Another update, this list will get longer with every passing year for sure. This graphic now shows 180 different wolves. And it's still not all wolves I have ever seen. Let's say these are about 90%. Some I only have young puppy-pictures of which I didn't include here, or for some I didn't find an acceptable picture, or didn't take a photo of it at all.
________________________________

This is one of the main reasons why I love wolves so much. I don't know any other wild (not domestic) animal species that comes in so many different shapes, sizes and colours naturally! Just look at how different they all are. Their uniqueness in everything, appearance and, of course, personality makes them so special to me. And while none of them look the same you can still see clear similarities between relatives.
I’m such a nerd by now I can remember wolf faces easier than human faces, haha.

All photos were taken by myself. Here is a full list of where to find each wolf, it's species and - if known - name and gender.
[Random Facts: Why are some subspecies in quotation marks? Because these wolves cannot be classified to a single subspecies. Most so called polar wolves in Germany can allegedly be traced back to a single pack of canadian wolves that even included black ones. A black male is even said to be the progenitor of all "polar wolves" in Germany and parts of Europe. I cannot provide a good source for this, though as I was told so by different people and did not read it anywhere. German people may read a few things about it when they look at these links and strg+f-search with the words "wolf" or "Wölfe". [Link] [Link] (these threads start at the bottom, the newest entry is at the top) Therefore I like to call our "polar wolves" European polar wolves, because they're definitely not real arctic wolves. It's also quite hard to guess how "pure" wolves that are labeled as timber wolf are in Germany. Almost all timber wolves in Germany are said to be Mackenzie Valley Wolves though - or just "Timberwolf" with no further specification.]

"I’m such a nerd by now I can remember wolf faces easier than human faces, haha." Definitely rings a bell, lol. Are all these wolves from Nature Parks from Germany? You definitely have a lot of options for wolf photography there!
Khalliysgraphy's avatar
Except for those from Zoo Zürich (Switzerland) and Dublin Zoo (Ireland), yes. :) There are many zoos and wildlife parks here in Germany with wolves and I'm still far from having seen all of them. Most of the animals I've pictured here are within a 2-hour-car-drive-reach.

I really like what you did there, espacially the colors organizing. They're so bautiful and adorable. Very nice shots by the way. I wanted to write a critique but I just couldnt write 100 words (kinda too much). So anyways:
Vision - Star! Star! Star! Star! Star!
Originality - Star! Star! Star! Star!  Half Star 
Technique - Star! Star! Star! Half Star 
Impact - Star! Star! Star! Star! Star! 
I Hope its fine.
