Wolf is the 3rd song on the album The Smoker You Drink, the Player You Get (1973). This album is most commonly known for the huge rock anthem "Rocky Mountain Way".

Post challenge: Wow. Thanks everyone for some great comments and the faves! I have to say, this is likely the alltime favourite image I have taken, so it hurts to not see it as my highest scoring shot. (I guess that damn wakeboard shot will be there forever!)

Can someone that left me a "1" please explain why? The 3 scores of "1" and 1 score of "3" kept this out of the ribbons. (I guess the trolls got their way) Note that the avg vote given by "participants" in the challenge is noticably lower. hmmm.

More info on how I got my wolf shots is already in the detail section of the following wolf shot. :) Thanks very much for the interest, it is appreciated.

This is beautiful. Another great wolf shot, well done and in my opinion should have been higher up the ladder.

Mac,

I know. . .it makes me boiling mad every time I see a blatant example of scoring manipulation like you see when a photo of this calibre gets 3's or less. Even 4's or less. It can be for no other reason but they have a photo that they think might be in the running, so they are trying to lower the scores of the ones they know are better than theirs.

Sooooooo, what is the story behind this beautiful, if not a bit weathered, animal??? Your photography definitely connects you to him on its own, but I'd love to know a little bit more of the story behind this photo. Its captivating -- and the way I love animals, I'm sure the story would make me love the photo even more :)

Congratulations on a capture that will live long after the final finish has been forgotten. But Congratulations also on a well deserved front page placing.

That's amazing to get this tight of a shot using a 70-200! You must have some pretty good access to these animals to capture something like this at that focal length. Wildlife animal preserve or something?

I didn't think it was possible to milk a wolf, but you proved me wrong. ;)

Beautiful photograph Ernie. Not only are the details incredible, the bright white wolf against the dark background is stunning. This is probably my favorite photo I have seen from you. Keep it up! - No Vote

really really nice, but i think you adjusted the song to the photograph and not the photograph to the song, but that is irrelevant...8

WOAH - this is absolutely incredible. Isn't it amazing what they can see with those tiny eyes. I surely think this deserves to be on the cover of World Wildlife Federation's calendar or magazine - holy crap. This is FABULOUS 10

These guys sure are popular lately and I can see why. No faults here. I'm guessing 21.gif Simms? by the processing.

Beautiful detail, the eyes are mesmerizing,

This is as great a shot of a wolf as any of the ones I've been seeing on DPC lately. If anything, I like this best, it's more natural, a mix between portrait and candid, sharpness is superb! 10
