Speed Goat, Interrupted

These citizens usually don't stand still for portraiture. This one, and a smaller buck, were about eighty yards off the road as I made my way down to stock the larder the other day.

I stopped the truck and managed to get one quick shot before he decided to haul. My current main camera needs a slightly longer lens. Guess I have to put that on the list.

These are wonderful critters and I enjoy living amongst 'em.

You get some great photos, and not all of it is due to your equipment. You've just got a flair for it. I enjoy the pictures on your blog at the same time they make we want to move to the wide open spaces.

Good picture of the stinkgoat.

Pronghorns are great reminders of the many large, fast, extinct predators they coevolved with: short-faced bears, cheetahs, dire wolves... One of the few "truly native" animals on the prairie.
