This picture of an Iberion wolf was taken by Jose Luis Rodriguez and has won an award for nature photograph of the year. The Wolf is spectacular, but I also love the gate he is jumping over.I hope you do too. Part of the gate got cropped so if you want to see the whole picture just click on the blue link below the picture. It’s worth the effort to see the complete gate. Enjoy

I have seen just a couple of wolves in the wild. Unless you are studying them and on a mission to find them, they will avoid you. Amazing to get a photo like this.

And … there’s WOOD in the picture!

Beautiful. Once-in-a-lifetime-kind of shot … particularly if the wolf is lunging for YOU ;-)

MY guess is the wolf enters the gated area through this same path every time. All you’d need to do is set up a motion sensor and a camera and then wait/hope. Anyone else think that is how it was done?

Photographers are special people, especially the ones that capture nature. The number of hours spent hoping to get the perfect shot, that may never materialize takes such patience. I don’t know how they do it.

LOL Jim. I sent an email to my kids and their family with this photo. Afterward I said to my wife that I should have just mentioned the fantastic rustic gate. They would think that typical of me.
