Photographing wolves in a wild, natural setting, requires patience and persistence. In this case however, I can claim neither of those virtues, should they be ascribed as such. Sometimes, just the sheer amount of time spent in the field delivers its respective dose of serendipity. While photographing bears in Katmai, this wolf occasioned the Brooks river shore a few times seeking the same nourishment that lured the bears – red salmon. I heard from people that on the previous day, the wolf caught a number of salmon, in all probability, returned to the den to feed young ones. On this visit however, the wolf did some serious looking, but no active fishing. Never the less, the little challenge I encountered to grab the scene was quickly throwing on a 2x converter to get the necessary reach. Always having those extenders accessible is a maxum worth following for any wildlife photography pursuit.
