It isn’t often you get pics of these speed demons lying down. They are quite wary of humans and more often than not, about all you see are white butts bounding away.
On this morning back in June 2018 in northeastern Colorado, this pretty lady was kind enough to continue lying down and gave me some nice portraits of her.
Pronghorn are what folks oftentimes call antelope (and sing about ala “Home on the Range”) however that is a misnomer. Settlers called these animals antelope due to their similarity to Old World species however the pronghorn is its own, distinct family. Genetics show that they are in fact closely related to okapi and giraffe.
