For those who are interested here is what I used for this shot: Canon EOS 5D Mark III EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM Æ’/10.0 105.0 mm 1/125 400 Flash (on, fired, Canon speedlight)

Thank you for your comments. For the lighting, I used only one flash mounted on my 5D because I shot this one handheld on the fly. The exhibition in France granted me the Jury grand prize for my shot of the wolf under the northern lights.
