Black Wolf Cruising (Pepper)
I went down to Tsappee Narrows to see if the Daredevil or Delilah was home. He was,she wasn’t.
This wolf was as well and was passing through their territory!
When I arrive at a given location,the first thing I do is get the exposure.
I take a guess at the exposure and check it. Well I didn’t even know this,but on my check shot I accidentally took a shot of this wolf! I saw it a second after,but I didn’t see it initially! How embarrassing! I need to pay more attention to the shoreline!
This wolf is one I call Pepper! Last time we met he wasn’t very happy with me. I stumbled upon his Den accidentally,or at least I assume it was his Den. I haven’t gone into the forest to check it out. I do not want to put my scent around his Den if he is still using it?
After it walked across this small beach,I saw it go up into the forest and because I know that shore line,I knew that it was probably cruising and going to cut across the point and come out on the other side!
The only problem was that this shore line was in the shade! I zipped around the point, cut the motor,got the exposure(1000 ISO at 1/250th,f5.6) and lay in wait.
I also know that they use this point to swim to the other side of the channel. It’s the closest Meares island comes to the mainland of Vancouver island. I have heard from several people that they do use this narrow crossing to do just that,cross!
Well,I waited half a hour and it didn’t show. It should of taken mush less time to do that distance! Which meant that it must of spotted me on the other side. I think it just stayed in the bush. Thats my guess?
When a animal is swimming,it is very vulnerable. So ergo you do not go in the water when another animal is in the water!
They are very smart creatures and not to be underestimated! I was glad to get what I did!
By this time that thicker cloud had moved in and the light went bye bye!
I got a few of the Daredevil and a Heron. That was it for tonight! Not much,but the wolf made up for that!
