In British Columbia, a coastal wolf is well camouflaged in cedar boughs at the forest’s edge. Scientists have shown that larger islands off the coast of the province are more likely to hold these beachcombing wolves at any given time, but another key factor is the length of shorelines—rich in marine offerings.

Beautiful animal and the dead tree branches create a rhythmic movement that makes the picture very interesting.
