It’s always a thrill to see a wolf in Yellowstone. Got lucky on 2 of my 4 trips to see them up close.
We saw a male black wolf and a female walking down the road on one of our trips in the snow coach. They left the road and went into the woods. We drove past the crowd of people trying to see them and stopped at a field next to the woods. They came out of the woods and walked parallel to the road at a distance and then came closer. Looked like they were going to give us a show by mating, but it didn’t happen.

Here is the beautiful female.
Tim, thank you for sharing those photos from Yellowstone. I follow the wolf packs closely through various sites, and just attended a zoom presentation on them. Sadly, many have recently been killed again. I hope these two wolves will survive. Your photos are so special and beautiful.💗

Thank you very much Diane! It’s very sad that 20 were shot recently just outside the park. There have been lots of wolf sightings in the park lately on Facebook. Wish that I was still there.
