Lone Wolf

Reader Mike Farmer recently captured this black wolf, a rarity in the wild. While technically simply a "black-colored" gray wolf, it is estimated the percentage of them found in wolf populations is in the single digits. Appropriately, the first full moon of the year rose Monday, and it is called the wolf moon. The Pine Knot News is always interested in photo captures from readers, whether it be in the wilds or just from everyday life. People and animals and the beauty of nature are welcome. Send them to [email protected] with some description, and put "photo" in the subject line. Happy snapping.
