Galloping Pronghorn buck

It’s been a while since I have seen any of these speed demons so this capture dates back to last July. As usual, he wasn’t too willing to pose for pictures but also didn’t take off at a flat out run giving me a chance to grab a couple of shots.

Before the arrival of western Europeans, it is believed as many as 40 million of them roamed the open rangelands of North America – possibly more than there were bison. Hunting and fragmentation of their habitat by fences and human settlements took its toll and as few as 20,000 remained at the start of the 20th century.

Thankfully conservation and education saved them from extinction and they now number almost 1 million.
