This is one good looking guy, eh? Taken back at the end of June, I was out for a photo drive while camping on Colorado’s northeastern plains.
Pronghorn are creatures that I think are way cool – heck, they are the fastest land animal in North America and second in the world only to the Cheetah! They also are notoriously difficult to photograph, more often than not just giving you a shot of their bright, white rear end as they run away.
On this day though, this buck was willing to stand relatively close. They are notoriously curious so I employed a bit of a trick I learned long ago of waving a bright handkerchief. You could tell he really wanted to run but he also couldn’t resist momentarily checking out the motion and in doing so gave me a great shot.
