I don't know what makes me fond of them so much... Is it because their cool to look at, Or maybe you see yourself as one of them or to become them, Or is it because you can see their strength and feelings? For me, It's of the above... Very nice photo... respect.
Where are you going to see these animals? Encountering these animals in the wild are rare, even for areas like mine where Wolves are flourishing due to a long ban on their hunting (of course now there's too many and they are attacking humans and cattle due to a lack of prey animals).
Wonderful shot, and a gorgeous animal. I love the composition of the piece as well. edge play on the top with her ear and the top of the frame, and all the negative space to the left. Great composition.
