  1. “Spirit” looks most appropriate. A nice close-up.

    Gorgeous photo–definitely can see the Spirit in the eyes.

  4. I agree with Ben and Caddo about “Spirit”! Wolves are such beautiful, intelligent creatures. Wonderful photo!

  5. Wonderful capture of this wolf panting in the heat! So very patient!

  6. So beautiful! I love their amber eyes that are always outlined as if they have eyeliner on. It must have been a hot day in New Mexico! I would love to visit the sanctuary one day, do they have a release program or is it a home for life sanctuary?

  7. The sanctuary is for wolves that are not capable of surviving in the wild. Therefore it is a sanctuary for life. Both wolf dogs and wolves find a home there in the Zuni Mountains of New Mexico. The Mexican wolf is native in New Mexico, but only a handful survive along the Mexican, New Mexican, and Arizona borders, and there is no guarantee that will not go extinct in that area in the near future. A lot of ranchers are opposed to the wolves survival in southern New Mexico, and the death of a wolf makes the newspapers in the state every once in awhile, often through human intervention.
