If you can break yourself away from this timber wolf’s intense yellow gaze, you may find yourself a bit intimidated by those razor sharp teeth. Flickr photographer Jim Cumming is a brave man for getting so close to this wolf! But his courage paid off — we’ve named this shot our Nature Photo of the Week. (Thank you for sharing it through The Nature Conservancy’s Flickr group!).
