Playful Wolves. Freezing temperatures in North East Finland very close to the Russian border had produced the most impressive hoar frost. This was a magical setting to watch for wolves. The resident wolf pack had produced 6 pups in the spring: five males and one female. As we waited, five of them appeared in front of us and began to play. They always seemed to pick on the same wolf pup by biting its legs and tail. It was great fun to watch them gallivanting around in this winter wonderland. Finally they ran off in to forest. Playful wolves in an amazing setting – perfect!
