The Pronghorn Antelope can be found on the prairies of Southern Alberta and Saskatchewan as well as Montana and Idaho. They are a remnant of several species that survived the ice age. They are not an antelope at all as they are considered to be part of the Giraffe and Okapi family however the common name has stuck. They roam in small groups and are usually quite skittish see the pano.
These are two beautiful monochromatic images. Are you sure you don't want to include them in this month's ToM? If you forgot to click on "Yes," you may do so in edit mode. I would certainly include this in my candidates.
I thought this one was part of the TOM: Brown & white. They certainly are skittish. I was guessing that you used your big lens! I see a lot of pronghorns around here, but have never captured one on my camera. One night near Christmas, we saw a group of them running up a snowy, moonlit hillside in pairs; it looked like Santa's reindeer. I'm really enjoying your wildlife images. Regards, Pat
Very nice shot of the Pronghorn Antelope. I have seen them from the Desert of Utah, but especially in Wyoming, Grand Teton and Yellowstone and all the way up to Glacier National Park. Very nice limited color of browns...Excellent sharpness and soft background.
Despite the natural tints of the entire image with your well chosen DoF he jumps out from his background. Lovely image and a strong composition. He could actually be a contribution to the theme with the limited colour palette
Two wonderful wildlife images. Both work well, maybe the LV is a hint more impressive with the whole group in the image but also the loner in the main image makes a great photograph and you can see he is in "charge". Giraffe family, huh? Strange to see the same group running around in the prairies of Alberta :-) Love the pale prairie grass, all in the same color, wildlife and nature, over all the years and years they have adapted.
Yes, they are some most skittish animals in North America. Usually when you see them the minute you slow down they are gone. I was lucky several years ago to visit the National Bison Range in Montana where the animals seem to be accustom to people stopping and watching and got some very nice images. We visited in late May/early June and the babies were out playing and a hoot to watch. The Pronghorn is quite common in Colorado, Nebraska and Wyoming just to name a few further south of Canada. I also spotted one is southern Utah at Bryce Canyon and that one was real surprise.
I have seen tons of these non-antelope creatures. Their beauty is striking and I still have to stop in my tracks when I spot them. Unfortunately they are very skittish and I never got a descent shot of any. Good work here!
