It isn't often that I do a whole body portrait of an animal, much less a detailed background, with this wolf I liked the backlit effect of his fur and also the setting with the light filtering through the trees.  

Sadly the sanctuary where I saw him has now closed to the public to allow the wolves to live a quite life in their retirement.
