Hi! I'm the blog owner. I was born and raised in the very beautiful 'Lake District National Park', in north-west Englandand moved to the USA in the early 2000's. I've been interested in wildlife since I was at primary (i.e. elementary) school and I've been into photography just as long, although I didn't get my first SLR until I was 21. Photography later became a large part of my work and I was a professional for 18 years. I became a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society [LRPS] of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain in 1985, and was later elected a Fellow of the Royal Geographic Society [FRGS] as a result of a six-month photographic expedition I undertook across Africa. I've only recently got into digital photography and I still have much to learn about this and the necessary digital editing.

The recent success of the wolf has been in reaching territories that have been empty for centuries. The American Midwest, Rome, the North Sea coasts of Europe and even Parisian suburbs are within range. Within 30 years population of the grey wolf, Canis lupus has quadrupled. France, Germany, Scandinavia and Italy have the required wilderness areas, whereas the Netherlands, central Scotland and many other urban areas seem unlikely but possible habitats.
