Today’s photo is a pair of Pronghorn Antelopes, taken in Grand Teton National Park during my 2014 trip. I was there in early june, just after the roads opened up, specifically to shoot wildlife.
While exploring Grand Teton one day, I saw this pair of Antelopes foraging along the road ahead of me and which seemed to be headed my way, so I pulled over, shut down the engine and waited to see what happened. Over the next 30 minutes or so, they continued on the road towards me until I was in a good position to get images of them — and then they for some reason crossed the road and headed into the brush about 100 feet in front of my car, so all of my images are at an angle towards them in front of the car and not broadside as I was hoping. Oh well, that’s nature photography, and I’m not complaining.
If you look at these two, you’ll see the one on the right is very, very pregnant. She is very close to giving birth and some of the pronghorns had given birth by the time I arrived in the area. The one on the left is probably her calf from last year, because they tend to stay with their mother for the first year or so after birth and they work cooperatively.
