This picture of a hunting wolf won the prestigious Veolia Environment Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2009 award.

The photographer, Jose Luis Rodriguez, planned the photo for years, and even sketched it out on a piece of paper.

“I wanted to capture a photo in which you would see a wolf in an act of hunting – or predation – but without blood,” he told BBC News. “I didn’t want a cruel image.”

With a great deal of patience and careful observation of the wolves’ movements, he succeeded in taking the award-winning photograph.
