Dina said...

Rune, you took that great picture??!
You were that close to a real live wolf?!

This week a girl and a woman are getting rabies shots after being bitten by a wolf here in Israel.
Be careful.

Gerald (Hyde DP) said...

I hope you didn't find that in the wild.

Carol said...

What a shot! How did you capture this! Great L.

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Du store, så fint bilde du har fått av den Rune. Ikke hverdagskost det her :) Kr.sand?

imac said...

Great capture my friend.

Reader Wil said...

Rune( bildebloggen) har rett: Ikke hverdagskost!! Var det ikke farlig? Jeg håper at der er ikke mange ulver i Norge.

Reader Wil said...

Me again! I read your comment, Rune. You mentioned the London Eye. Well actually I would have loved to have a ride on it. My eldest daughter has drawn part of it when she worked as a draughtman with Hollandia, the Dutch firm that made the London Eye. At that time I taught English. Many of my students( all adults) were somehow involved in the construction of the Wheel. Almost every lesson I spent some time to the biggest wheel on earth in 2000. There were several attempts to pull up the wheel. The first time we saw how the cables broke. A month later was the second attempt, which was successful. I am proud that my daughter drew part of it!!

Oj, for et kraftfullt bilde da gitt, men neppe fra Bergen sentrum...

Skrekk og gru... jeg klarer ikke å ikke grøsse på ryggen. Flott fangst, for dere begge!

Carolyn Ford said...

Beverley Baird said...

Great photo!

Stunning shot of the illusive wolf.

Roger Owen Green said...

Great capture, as always. Talk about "hungry like the wolf". On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team, thank you!- Ramblin' with Roger

ArneA said...

Sauer på toppen og ulv på jakt. Hva sier Sponheim til det.

Randi said...

Helt fantastiskt! Hur hann du med att fotografera flykten?! Jag är super-imponerad.

Gary said...

Excellent shot - what is that in its mouth? Some poor unfortunate beast no doubt.

Cheers
Gary

Malyss said...

What I like in your picture is the movement of the wolf, and its perfect shadow. the shadow doubles the movement , and we really "feel" the wolf running!
we have a place called Alpha Park, here, where wolves live "free" and can be observed.

Randi said...

Tack för din söta kommentar! "You made me smile". Det är inte en stolpe i havet - det är ett stort träd i kohagen. Vattnet i ån, som rinner genom hagen, har svämmat över. Men din tolkning är störtskön!

John`s Photography said...

Flott fanget Rune.

Jayne said...

Great shot...even though the thought of wolves roaming free still freaks me out just a little bit as I sit in my little 'safe haven' of an island! :)

Greyscale Territory said...

Amazing shot of a wolf on the run! Beautiful and scarey!

becky at abbeystyle said...

Oh, wow! How'd you do that? A miracle capture!

becky at abbeystyle said...

oh WOW! A miracle moment! Nice capture...how'd you manage it?

Tarun Mitra said...

really fantastic picture

katney said...

The lambs in your header had better watch out.

Abraham said...

I am not able to tell what the wolf has but it looks like some old man's hat with a red headband. I guess the old man is lucky that is all he got.

Tumblewords: said...

Wow! What a fantastic shot!

Ann said...

Did you go hunting or was this taken in the zoo?

Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease, and before I went to your site, you got me wondering how you were going to post on lupus.

Grace and Bradley said...

Amazing, you caught it right in action. Was it a chicken in its mouth, hope it is not from your farm.

Ken Mac said...

stunning@ Death Race 2010!

Hege said...

OJJJ!!! En ulv! På jakt? Hvor i alledager har du tatt dette bildet?

Utrolig bra bilde er det iallfall!

Tom said...

Stunning shot... what a pleasure it must have been such an animal.. fantastic 'L' shot for sure Rune

Petra said...

Runee, I would define your "L" post with the word "Lucky".
Lucky you have met the wolf,
lucky you weren't hurt by it,
lucky you were prepared and quick enough to get the shot. :-) Great picture!

ChrisJ said...

Something like our coyotes but actually more beautiful I think. I saw a hawk catch a poor little song bird today. The poor thing was crying as he was carried to the top of a palm tree and, I expect, the hawk had it for dinner.

Jay said...

That's an incredible picture! Caught in the act!

Anna said...

Imponerande!
Hur fick du ta denna bild??
Fiffigt att använda det latinska namnet för vargen!
Jag är väldigt sen.
Trevlig helg,
Anna

I think this was taken in a museum, but there's a hint of doubt in my mind that perhaps you found this in the woods?
By the way, I didn't have internet access for a whole week, so I'm just catching up now.

T. Becque said...

Wow, I don't know but I missed this the last time I visited your page. This is fantastic!
