To all the wolf (and werewolf) lovers out there - latest pic from my fav Russian nature photographer.He's married to an American WWF activist, Laura Williams. When not traveling, they live in a small Russian village near Bryansky forest national park (the woman is a hero, I tell you).



He specializes in bears and foxes (his are the loveliest foxes and sweetest bears ever), but does an occasional wolf or wolverine or sable too, all natives of Russia :)


He has a volunteer that translates his blog into English:

He has published a couple of books with photos.

 And I'm not affiliated with either Laura or Igor, I'm just a quiet reader of his blog :)
