I was sitting with several photographers on the Katmai Coast on an early June day in 2015, waiting for a big male brown bear to wander closer. Someone said, “There’s a wolf coming up behind us!” And sure enough, up trotted this young male, to within ten feet of me. His eyes had a very familiar look to them; reminded me of a certain black wolf I knew, you know? Maybe it was because I was closest; but he gazed at me directly as if in recognition, gave this polite, sociable wolf grin, and after a couple of minutes, trotted off across the tidal flat, and faded into the country. You’d like to think so, wouldn’t you?
