The Howling by LoneWolfPhotography The Howling by LoneWolfPhotography
I've always had a thing for wolves. To me they represent the ultimate in wild, untamed freedom as well as the level of base fear they can bring out in the strongest of men, regardless of how well deserved that fear is. What also amazes me about them is their "family" strength, the way they cooperate in everything they do, the way their hierarchy is designed and that they will mate for life, unlike their human counterparts. I feel a kinship with them in a strange way and I've been told that they are very likely my guiding spirit, my totem. This is why I chose to name my photography business after them and it was a simple decision to call my business "Lone" Wolf Photography as I am and continue to stay pretty much a loner. I even have a video I've taken of me and this guy (his name is Marcus by the way and unfortunately he is no longer with us) talking together for several minutes. I get chills when I think of it. If you think you would like to see this short video, the link is here. [link]

Sorry it took me so long to reply. For the last few months, I've been mostly unable to be on DA. But it was a very nice compliment to come back to and I thank you very much! :boogie: This was a very nice thing for you to say and I really do appreciate it. :bow: Glad to hear you have a thing for wolves as well...I believe they can use all the friends they can get. Here, in my current home of Oregon, the program to re-introduce wolves is well underway but still in it's infancy and already, I am hearing reports in the news of 'suspected wolf killings' of rancher's livestock so I can't help but wonder how long it will be before I start hearing of wolves being killed and all the complaints from ranchers, real OR made up. :(

The wolf you have complimented me on is Marcus. He's gone now, but for a long time he was the Alpha Male of the small pack at the Oregon Zoo and many many people's favorite, including me. :nod:

First off, I am very sad to hear that he is gone. He seems to have meant a great deal to yourself and a lot of people. Also, I am sorry to hear about the conflict with the ranchers. We in the state of maine are going through something very similar. The animal refuges have been trying to release wolves into the wild but with little success. They have been hunted to the brink of extinction up here and now there is some debate of if there are any left out in the wild. The same exact thing is happening to the coyote population now, both species have such a horrible reputation and they don't deserve it. Such a sad thing. But hopefully I will get to volunteer at an animal refuge next summer and maybe even get a few good shots out of the animals there as well.

:D Hey, you do that pretty good! Marcus was a great howler...always willing to "talk" to anyone. Just in case you might be interested, I actually have a video that was taken the same day as this shot was taken, of he and I having a "conversation". I howled to him and he instantly howled back to me in reply. It's kind of cool to watch if you're interested. [link] The link is also in my journal.

Well, I don't know if I really have one, but if I did, and I understand correctly what a totem is (like a symbol or spirit guide?) it would definitely be the Wolf! No question about it. :nod: :D

Awww This is a great photo. I admire the wolf for so many reasons, much of which you mentioned above.
I think your business name is Fitting & Kindred.

Beautiful shot.

That's my Marcus! He was awesome from birth to death! Yes, he's gone now...but never forgotten. I took photos of him his whole life. Even talked to him on several occasions. This shot was from one of those times.

In his prime, he was magnificent! When he first came to the zoo as nothing more than a pup and for the first year or so....he was more black than anything else. A little gray or silver in the insides of his legs but that's about it. Though I miss him a lot...they did an excellent job of replacing him....Yazhi is so exquisitely beautiful she's almost painful to look at. :)
