Weekend in Ely

Wolf yearling at the International Wolf Center, Ely MN
Spent the weekend in Ely, up by the Canadian border in Northern Minnesota. I was the “prom photographer” for the Mukluk Ball! The day after I spent half an hour (far too little time, but people were waiting for me…) photographing wolves at the International Wolf Center. The one in this picture is a yearling pup that was enjoying the sun a great deal! It kept rolling over and putting its legs up in the air to sun its belly.

My favorite photo from the day is this next one, of the alpha wolf, Shadow, walking past the den with a big chunk of deer spine in his mouth. However, I’m not sure that my viewers want something that bloody on the front page so I’m including it lower down here…

Anyway, here’s Shadow and his venison. The center takes donations of roadkilled deer to feed the wolves; they hunt rabbits and other wild animals that make it into their acre, but live cornered deer are too likely to hurt the wolves if placed in their pen.

Oh, yeah, by the way I’m back in the States now. Haven’t updated this blog in far too long…

    1. Thanks, I did the site design tweaks myself! The template is from an online generator – you’ll find a link under the footer. Then I just played with the CSS and put in a background texture and changed the default icons around.
