Kroft’s journey to this remarkable shot began with a tip-off about a grizzly bear’s recent successful moose hunt.

Eager to document more of these mighty creatures in action, he embarked on a pre-dawn expedition.

His alarm sounded at 2 a.m., just in time for the dawn when grizzlies are most active searching for their first meal.

However, the pre-dawn hours also mark when wolves venture out in pursuit of their prey, setting the stage for an extraordinary encounter.

As fate would have it, a gray wolf ventured remarkably close to the grizzly, allowing Kroft to capture a photograph that would leave viewers in awe.

What adds to the enchantment of this photograph is the natural ambiance that envelops the scene.

The gentle rays of the morning sun pierced through the mist, casting an ethereal glow on the crystal-clear river waters.

This encounter was a dream come true for Kroft, an animal enthusiast since childhood. While he had crossed paths with black bears during numerous multi-day camping expeditions, getting up close with wolves had remained an elusive experience.


He had encountered grizzly bears exclusively within the confines of Yellowstone National Park, where he always came prepared with bear-repelling spray for safety.

Kroft’s lifelong love for animals and his thirst for adrenaline and adventure led him down this captivating path. His passion for wildlife photography has become an exhilarating and cherished pursuit.

In this encounter between two formidable yet majestic creatures, Kroft’s lens captured a moment frozen in time and a testament to the untamed beauty of nature in Yellowstone National Park.
