Wolf, Denali National Park

Photograph by Brian Montalbo, Your Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Weather Photos

I photographed this wolf hunting snowshoe hares in Denali National Park. He stopped only for a second and I captured two shots. This is one of them.

(This photo and caption were submitted to Your Shot.)

U.S. National Park Week is April 20-28. Download park guides in our National Parks by National Geographic app and get ready to explore.

You mean he wasn't taking down some rancher's cattle or dragging small children in to the forest?  Wow.  Seriously though, beautiful pic. :)

This is a really nice photo you can barely see the wolf's fur.

The wolf is beautiful, and so well camouflaged. That would be awesome to be there.

This is the spirit of the woods, the eyes of the trees, the heart of the sky.

I like how the wolf blends in with with the surrounding brush
