Teva the She-Wolf Headdress by NaturePunk Teva the She-Wolf Headdress by NaturePunk
Teddy Anderson of Teddy Anderson Photography swung through Portland on a visit.

We were originally going to spend a few hours shooting, but ended up on a photo-walk that lasted from around 2:00 until 7:00.

When he said he was planning to spend the night in his car, I offered my place for the night, so we ended up having a slumber party here with Blackjack when we were done.

Taxidermy and post-processing by me. :)

NOTE: Teva is a female wolf from Southeast Alaska. She was taken for population control by a friend of mine who works with the state Fish and Wildlife Department. Her pelt was already tanned when I purchased her and she was not deemed suitable for traditional taxidermy purposes. The alternative would have been to sell her on the open fur market, where her pelt would have been cut up and made into clothing.

If you don't like it, don't look.

I'm glad you kept her off the fur market. You look shamanic :)

I don't see why people freak out about this, the wolf was already dead, she didn't slaughter it herself, not only that but it would have gone to waste any other way (at least in my opinion). sorry about that rant, lovely photo,

How respectful to it

You obviously either didn't read the artist comment or are too dense to understand it.

Yep. She has silvery fur on her underbelly, too.
