This guy was about 100 yards away and all I had was my 200mmL lens--to paraphrase the "JAWS" quote--I'm gonna need a bigger lens! I was still excited to get a shot of a wolf in the wild at all.

Cades Cove is one of my favorite places. i've seen many animals there but never a wolf. Great shot.

There was a photographer nearby who had a huge lens on a tripod and was getting shots of the wolf. Bet he got some great ones, I was just too far away for the lens.

Good capture, but it looks like a coyote to me.

You could be right. I do know they released about 12 red wolves in the Cove several years ago and it was semi-successful, as they kept seeking out people instead of living off the land. Any experts out there who can tell what this animal is??

Very nice pttenn. Its times like these that force us to buy more stuff! I love that part of Tennessee. My wife and I go to the mountains every year up there. While I'm no expert, I'm betting its a wolf. I've not heard of coyotes in this part of the country. But then again, perhaps I haven't listened enough

I'm not sure, but it looks more like a coyote. Wolves tend to be more massive in build. However, there are documented cases of wolf/coyote crosses, so.....

I'm gonna call it a wolf...lol. Sounds more exciting than a coyote. :)

If you google other inamges of red wolves, this does look like a red wolf to me. I read in an article that they are in size, between a grey wolf and a coyote. Did you know this is the MOST endangered mammal in North America?? You have every right to be proud. This is something not many other people will ever get to see, let alone photograph. The same article was saying that interbreeding between coyotes was a problem in the wild, like deltadarlin said. But even if it's a cross, way to go!! Here's the article: http://www.wolfsource.​org/rwhrva.html (external link)

Here's a good article about the interbreeding with a picture of a red wolf. Your image certainly looks like one.

Wow-now I'm even more excited. Just wish I had had a tripod and bigger lens. Hand held 200mm from the road is just not close enough! Thanks for the info, I will check it out.

You definitely have a good rationalization for that bigger and better lens, go for it!! Excellent capture whichever canid it may be.

Looks like you're getting a lot of use from that lens. Nice catch. I may have to go back there soon and see what I can find.

This is a coyote. The long narrow face and big pointy ears is enough to know it isn't a wolf. Also, no cape on the neck and shoulders.
