p.3 #1 · p.3 #1 · Wolves - On Kootenay Highway


Genes Home: Next time I am running from wolves I will remember your offer. Unfortunately it only happens 1/6months and at an unpredictable moment. A year or 2 ago I got between 2 wolves chasing a moose about 30k from this spot, and did not notice the wolves until they were just across the road from me. That was fun. My daughter says - look at the nice dogs dad. Come to Alberta and I will look for them with you. I can't guarantee wolves but I can guarantee something - grizzly, moose, bighorn, mountain goats.... Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


Sunny Sra: Glad you like them. It is a reminder to me that even a day without color could result in some great opportunity. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


Charlie Shugart: I am hoping that it was the tripod - otherwise I would have to report him to the rangers. I think it was the tripod that attracked him. The story fits right in there with being charged by the grizzly last year, or watching the grizzly fall asleep, or following the moose into the bush and then having him stop.... It was fun. Glad you like the pictures and back story. Much appreciated. Scott


USM IS: Glad you like my model wolves. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

Jim: I sure it was safer than it felt. I was just worried because people have been known to feed wolves on that route and he did not seem much afraid of myself. But I did not want to test the theory. Or have to run at the last minute with my lens sitting vunerable. Its funny - I go looking for them and I don't find them and then when I am not looking they show up. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

Outstanding images. Great story. Last four looks like a predator sizing you up as a threat or a meal, and not mere curiosity.

Great set Scott but getting a bit too close for comfort obviously.
Take care.

JimLittle: Glad you like my wolf models. They work just for the chance to eat you. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


David Leask: I was not planning to risk anything - just got lucky. Glad you like them. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


brimull: I think he was deciding whether he should eat me but the big question is - if I was away from my truck the pack around me, would he have stopped just short - likely. Glad you like the images and story. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott
Martin Good: It was just close enough for mild discomfort. Glad you like them. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


signo: I could touch the tripod from my window as he came up. I even felt nervous to have the window open. He just looked over the tripod without biting it or even licking it. Maybe he was just showing his fellow wolves that he was brave. After he went a bit away, I got out and took pictures of him retreating . I then listened to the wolves howling over my head - it was fantastic. Then I put the tripod away. Glad you like them. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

Terrific, Scott! Thanks for sharing these- I doubt I'd ever have the nerve to get this close!

They were not close. When I first saw them they were across the river and I had to switch to 1.4x and 7d to close the distance. Initially my nervousness was when they stopped to howl and the howl was returned on the other side of me. But then I considered that they were just checking in with each other. The close part happened quickly - perhaps over 10 seconds. So my bravado was more situational then planned. But it was fun. Glad you like them. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

Super shots. I like #2 and 3. #9-12 are also great "poses." I am sure you can work on the noise levels of those last ones. I saw my first Canadian moose on Hwy 93, 21 years ago. Elk at Jasper are a hoot to watch.
