Dance wolf, dance!

Recommended Posts

Langedrag Nature Park is a good place for photographing wolves and other animals. It is as close to the wild situation as I can come at present. Although not free, these wolves have a lot of space in natural surroundings, and they have not been socialized.

(D3s+ 300mm/2.8 VR II, except #2 that was shot with the D7000 + 70-200/2.8 VR II)

Nicely done Terje, I like wolves. Sometimes they look incredibly benign and sometimes ferocious but of course you have to remember they are extremely clever carnivores. :D

I too like wolves, we don't get many photos of them posted

here so these are a treat.

Dancing wolf in particular is a great catch.

I love the combination (and the title) in #5 :)

Thanks all for your comments. Langedrag is a really nice place. One can stay there for a few days and even do some cross country skiing in the beautiful surrounding mountains.

Along with your recent series of the arctic foxes, this series illustrates various aspect of the vividness of this wild animal.

 

By the way, this fine series of yours reminds me of the vdeo clip accompanying Joni Mitchell's song "Coyote" from her live Video/DVD called "Shadows and Light".  :)

Spectacular shots !!

I love the Resting Wolf. So funny that it is not bothered by the bird. I wonder if the bird knows the danger it might be in !!!

Dancing Wolf is very cool.

Thanks Andrea. I believe the magpie knows that a full and sleepy wolf does not represent much of a danger. In general, the birds probably know pretty well where the zone of danger is.

Thank you Elsa and Armando.

Yes, Armando, many of my wolf shots were taken around feeding time. I stayed for many hours and took a lot of pics, and also went inside the lynx enclosure; my plan is to post some lynx shots later.

      I often think that the given light can play a more important role than the place itself.

      This is about 200 meters down the river on the above shots, 2014.

      I'm surrounded by people who really wants to help me get established as a Nature and Landscape Photographer, and without their help I wouldn't have a chance..
      A couple of weeks ago I was given another golden opportunity of a very nice gentleman, I was given the chance of a "cheap" Nikon 300 2.8 VR.. Which I of course took..

      I'm so happy with the lens, can't find words to describe how happy I am right now, just waiting for money enough to buy a TC, 1.7x I was thinking! Then I'm ready to go photograph animals and so much other stuff I've been longing for.
      But, (there's always a "but"), there's a small issue I'm wondering about; When the AF is on and the lens is turning from the closest to the farest, I can hear a tiny "squeak", a little "beep" is sounding, it really sounds like it's something dry inside and could use a drop of oil or something. Anybody else in here who has had the same issue??
      To take the lens into service, money won't allow right now..
      Have a great day you all!! :-)

      In the clear autumn air in the high mountains of Norway, there was little light pollution beyond the faint glow from inside the cabin. I did not have my tripod with me so the D5100 was just propped up at a stone table outside the cabin (best viewed large):
      #1

       
      10.5mm @f/2.8 D5100 ISO 1600 30s,  defished in the vertical plane with Fisheye Hemi.
       
       
      #2

       
      10.5mm @f/2.8 D5100 ISO 1600 30s.

      Woke up to another warm day. Sun or rain, I love this view.
      This is the final shot made with my X-T1...next stop: Nikon D810!
