I'm still culling the slide files, and as I find some I like, I scan them. I'm rapidly filling a new 500G HD.

Here's a couple wolf photos, each taken in Denali NP here in Alaska. Believe it or not, the first two were shot with a 500mm handheld. I keep my camera handy just in case something pops out, and that''s exactly what these first two did, giving me only a few seconds to shoot before they were gone. I didn't have time to put the camera on a tripod; I just stuck it out the window, and fired off a burst. These were all shot on Fuji Velvia exposed at ASA 40. The last shot, of the wolf with a Dall sheep Ram was shot by my Dad when he was driving my truck out of the park after our wedding, which was held at the Kantishna Roadhouse. I had an airplane then, so we took off for our honeymoon in the plane.

#2 reminds me of my dog stalking a squirrel in the yard. I love the squinty look of his eye! All your shots are wonderful. Thanks for posting.

Last one reminds me of what Georgetown did to the Heels last weekend.

Yea, well Maryland, my alma mater didn't fair all that well in the tournament either! Thanks guys for the kind comments on these photos. I also like the first photo very much; I was happy when I shot it! I only had a few seconds, and the wolf disappeared into the trees. Of course the most exciting series on wolves I've seen was too far away for good photos. Wolves had killed a caribou, and a brown bear came and took it away. I watched for an hour as three wolves hassled the bear until it finally picked up the carcass and ran off into the bushes. Meanwhile, 2 more wolves came by the same area chasing another caribou. I did get some shots of tiny animals on a gray river bar; but the memories are far better!
