    Wow Mike.

    All very beautifully done, as usual. The Tundra Wolf doen't look real happy with you :>)) Great shot. Great shot for the challenge.

    Bob Cat looks like he has had enough of you to. Look at the ears.

    Last protrait is great. He doesn't seem as agressive.

    What a marvelous opportunity. Glad you went. How did you son react to all these animals.

    Thank you very much for sharing these. Look foward to more.

    Regards
    Gale
     
  3. Yesss!

    Mike,

    They are all wonderful, once again. I think the wolf portrait is just magnificent: what a beautiful animal! But then, I am partial to dogs... :lol:

    You said before that you had an opening in the fence to have an unobstructed view. Is this dangerous at all? I mean that Tundra Wolf looks a bit menacing: did you tick him off, with the flash perhaps? Great, great job on the whole series :!: :!:
     
  4. Simple beautiful images Mike. These are magnificient animals and your rendition of them is excellent. Even though these are in semi-captivity it does not detract at all from the wildness of the animals.
     
  5. Excellent shots Mike. The black wolf looks like he is mad about something!! :shock: :shock: :shock:
     
  6. Hey Mike... what are you trying to do here :?: Drive us nuts :shock:

    These are at least NGS standards photography :!: BRAVOOOO!!! :eek:

    I paid a visit to their site and it seems that the will elect you as their president if you "donate" a few of your photos :wink:
     
  7. I'll say it again........EXCELLENT SHOTS!!! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

  12. So, Mike:

    When are you going to quit your day job???? At least I got to meet you before you hit the road and started your new career.... :)

    You just keep on putting up fantastic shots. Wow.
     
  13. I am joining the pack with a personal stand up ovation ...

    Fantastic shots.
     
  14. Ya Mike and when you quit your day job and become rich and famous I can say I knew you when. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Terrific,awesome,superb and all superlatives that I forgot
     
  16. thanks Gale there were all very cool to watch and how the interacted with each other
     
  17. Re: Yesss!

    Thansk I liek the way the wolf portrait came out, is it dangerous? I ould say no but after hearign about the chimp attack I would be a little more cautious but at no time di I feel scared or threatend at all
     
  18. I like the natural setting that this place had which to me made it, I tried not to have any untaural surroundings or shadows in the shot
     
  19. thanks for the kind words, the man who runds the site Dan Brown is a avid photgraper and sells a lot of his prints from here.
     
  20. That chimp attack was the craziest thing I have ever heard. Another strange part was (Well, to me anyways) the couple was having a birthday party for one of the chimps. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:
