When many people think of Florida, you can rest assured that wolves are not among the first things they associate with the Sunshine state. But that wasn't always the case. There was a, now extinct, species of wolf indigenous to Florida. These days, in the panhandle, there is the largest wolf preserve in the southeastern United States, and these packs serve as ambassadors for the lupine world. This photo was captured on a rainy day in December at the Seacrest Wolf Preserve, a place very special to me.
