White Alpha Tundra Wolf

This fanatastic photo of a white tundra alpha male surveying his territory from a tundra hillside was taken by client Eric Peterson on a 'Search for the Legendary Tundra Wolves' expedition to Canada's Far North. Close by in a deep coulee on the backside of the hill was an active den and three pups, with the white female mother watching over them. After a while the alpha male re-joined his mate to lay down by the den to rest before resuming a nightime of nocturnal hunting to feed his family. Eric Peterson writes:

"...Looking at the wolf through my camera and telephoto lens was a sight to behold. His head, face and shoulders filled the entire image as he peeked over the top of the ridge searching for my exact whereabouts. He seemed to sense I meant no harm or danger to him so he descended the small ridge, crossed over in front of me and headed for the shade of the esker pine trees that were below me and to my left. There in the shade sat this great white wolf, intelligent, inquisitive and extremely social. No fences, no enclosures, no platforms, no blinds, no vehicles--just the beauty of this wilderness and the two of us enjoying each others company as any two friends would do. Finally the wolf got up and started crossing yet another ridge. There he paused and looked back at me one more time before disappearing over the backside. Today my photographs stand as testament to what was for me a true spiritual experience..."  .
