Snow Journey by rieke-b Snow Journey by rieke-b
On a cold day, not long after the first snow, the wolves run together.
For some animals, this winter will be the last one.
For the wolves, the good times begin…
…when people let them be.


I’m reading a very interesting book about wolves at the moment, written by the biologist and wolf expert Erik Zimen who raised young wolves. Wolves just keep fascinating me. :heart:

Unlike dogs, wolves don’t hunt every animal that runs away from them. As wild animals who don’t get fed regularly, they have to learn quickly which hunt might be successful and when it’s no use following an animal that’s much too fast or strong for them. They just can’t afford to waste any energy.

This original painting is sold, but you can commission me if you're interested in a similar painting. :)

__________________________________________________


An einem kalten Tag, kurz nach dem ersten Schneefall, laufen die Wölfe zusammen.
Für einige Tiere wird dieser Winter der letzte sein.
Für die Wölfe beginnt nun eine gute Zeit,…
…wenn die Menschen es zulassen.


Ich lese im Moment ein sehr interessantes Buch, „Der Wolf – Verhalten, Ökologie und Mythos“ von Erik Zimen, der als Biologe und Verhaltensforscher junge Wölfe aufgezogen hat. Wölfe faszinieren mich einfach immer wieder. :heart:

Anders als Hunde, jagen Wölfe nicht jedem Tier hinterher, das vor ihnen davonläuft. Als Wildtiere, die nicht regelmäßig gefüttert werden, müssen sie schnell lernen, wann eine Jagd erfolgreich sein könne und wann es keinen Sinn macht, einem Tier nachzujagen, das letztendlich doch zu schnell oder zu stark für sie ist. Sie können es sich nicht leisten, Energie zu verschwenden.

Dieses Originalgemälde ist verkauft, aber wer an einem ähnlichen Bild interessiert ist, kann gern eines bei mir in Auftrag geben. :)

The lighting of the sky really helps to add depth to this painting. The way that the trees are placed make it look as though the viewer is watching the wolves from a distance.

:love: I love to look about this whole scene and eat it all up! The cloudy skies with the peek of sun, the blue horizon behind the leafless trees, the area seems so expansive. What kinds of wolves are these? They have unique colors. :) I give this two thumbs up and the review "masterpiece"! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Aww, you're making me melt! :blush: It wasn't even hard to do.
I had Eurasian wolves in mind. They often have different fur colours in one pack. :)
Thank you so much! :tighthug:(Expanse is a great word, by the way!)

Genial wie die Sonne durch die Wolken bricht - wie machst du das immer!? Sehr stimmungsvoll und man fühlt sich direkt als Beobachter, wenn so die Bäume links und rechts am Rand reinlugen.
Obwohl ich bezweifle, dass für die Wölfe der Winter eine gute Zeit ist ^^

Wow, schaut wirklich toll aus!
Das zarte Sonnenlicht, das herabfällt, der typische Winterhimmel und die schöne Landschaft … das alles drückt den Winter aus, der den Wölfen gehört. Die kleinen Grasspitzen, die noch grün hervorschauen … ich könnte das Bild ewig betrachten.
