Product Specifications

The Alpha: Artist Proof

Aaron Huey

“The leader of the pack is the Alpha female, and even though she is the smallest she is breaking through the fresh snow to make a trail for her mate and their pups who are all over 2 years old by this picture and much bigger than their mother. The pack had just been feeding on a moose kill site for several days, filling themselves before moving on, as they may not have another chance to feed that well for a month. 

I tracked this pack by plane with scientists over several weeks. They had received a faint signal from an old collar on one of them. The wolves could only really be photographed in large areas of snow so that their bodies could clearly be seen, and when they were in other territories with more trees or earth showing they were often hard to find and even harder to photograph. 

This was the result of many weeks of work and research and a little luck.”
