Bruno D'Amicis - And out comes the wolf

 

Last November, I had an unforgettable encounter with a wild Italian wolf. The light conditions were not so good, with low clouds and a thin fog always coming and going. Nevertheless, since I was just sitting in the open with no hide, the fog kept me concealed and allowed me to get quite close to this beautiful male. His piercing eyes made a hole into my heart.

    Oh man! Are you saying that you were able to sneak closer after you had spotted the wolf?

    Yup, up to 50m! Don't forget, I live in Abruzzo, true wolf land...;-)
