Like swans... by woxys Like swans... by woxys
I do not celebrate Valentine (there is nobody who would love me, unfortunately :giggle:), but I decided to choose this day for sharing this :)
It is one of the most uniques photos from my stock. It was taken last winter, when the wolves had mating season.
One of the females was doing her best to attract Atila the male.
Seconds before the mating itself began, there was a strange ritual.
The both lunged against each other, crossing their necks. They looked like swans, it was SO wonderful!
I stayed there absolutely alone, just me and wolves. I know those are ZOO animals, but I still felt very special for having a chance to watch them :heart:

Wonderful Valentine, everybody :aww:
