Pronghorn, Ocate, New Mexico, “Where The Rockies Meet The Plains”. Working through some images from yesterday I thought this was a real sweet picture with soft diffuse lighting adding to the gentle look of this Pronghorn. Can’t say I’d like to stand in it’s way when it decides to bolt! It is the fastest land animal in North America, with sustained speeds of 45 mph and top speed just over 60 mph. I know a couple of photographers who can attest to this fact, Paul Malinowski and Linda Duffy. Remember the lone Pronghorn racing the car? Thanks for looking. G

I sure do remember “chasing” the pronghorn with you at the wheel, Geraint. He was taunting me but it was one of the best photographic experiences of my life!
I felt sure you would remember that moment. Thanks Paul, and I thoroughly enjoyed the San Luis Valley photos you sent me. Sorry I wasn’t able to join you. But those crazy critters did a number on my car. All working well now. G
