Saturday morning found me on Colorado’s northeastern plains, well away from most people. My feathered friends didn’t want to come out and play so I hit the dirt roads looking for something photo-worthy. I figured I would find some proverbial “speed goats” and sure enough, I came across two good-sized herds.
As is pretty typical, they did not want to hang around for pictures, heading off in a cloud of dust. This one buck however lagged the rest of one of the herds giving me time to get into a half-way decent position to catch images of it as it raced by.
As North America’s fastest mammal, they can run up to 60mph making them a fun but somewhat difficult photo subject. I kind of liked this pic as it does a nice job showing the action, mid-stride and kicking up the dirt.
