These guys don’t get the press that moose, elk and deer do, but I absolutely love them. How can you not find the fastest land animal in the western hemisphere cool?
While my photo trip Saturday didn’t turn out as planned, I did find a couple of good-sized herds of these speed demons and, thankfully, they obliged me with some nice shots. Here, a buck decided it would rather not pose and took off running.
Being capable of speeds of 55mph and not usually liking people, they are a challenge to photograph. By far I have taken more “pronghorn butt” pictures than the rear-ends of any other animal. 😉
