Prairie ballet!

Thought I'd post this from the mulie sighting the other day. This little guy is "pronking." I believe it is an Afrikaans word for the stiff-legged, prancing run that some antelopes over there, and mulies here, use to cover ground. Whitetails do not indulge. What fun it is to watch a mob of a dozen or so mulies pronking away over the plains like a gaggle of wind-up toys!

Do you still hunt? I have pretty much come to that stage where I have lost interest in killing and find greater pleasure in watching them. Not that I find any moral difficulty in hunting. I just changed as I got older. Your camera work tells me you love wildlife as well. To qualify this, I would still bird hunt. I refer to large game.
