Pair of Pronghorn bucks get ready to run

If you’ve ever tried to get pictures of these speed demons you know how frustrating it can be. Pronghorn are notoriously skittish and quick to run in the opposite direction when they see you coming. More often than not, that results in a shot of them from the rear.

Last week at the Pawnee National Grasslands in Colorado the Pronghorn were numerous although oftentimes too far in the distance to get a decent capture. A few times though I at least had some opportunities, including this one. There were actually three bucks hanging out together and while they initially ran, they did pause briefly giving me just enough time to grab a couple of shots of them. After that, they were off to the races again.
