It has been a while since I have seen any of these speed demons as they do tend to be elusive. Last weekend though I ran across this quartet way out in a field after a snowstorm.
The buck and three does stopped to check me out as they grazed in a field. As is typical though, they weren’t inclined to wait around for pictures, only giving me a couple of shots before darting off over the hill.
Pronghorn (often incorrectly called #antelope) are the fastest land animal in the Western Hemisphere and second in the world only to the cheetah. They can sprint at speeds up to 60mph and run for extraordinarily long distances at slower speeds.
