I love to see pronghorn antelopes. As a child, I didn’t even know that we had them in Canada. I used to think they were some exotic African animal. Now that I know they exist in Canada and the States, I look for them whenever I’m in prairie country.
I was frustrated with having a trailer in tow, but at one point, we were able to pull into a weighing station that was not in use and get off the freeway long enough for me to take a few photos of the herd of pronghorns that happened to be grazing in the field nearby.
I used the zoom and found that they had turned their back on me. “Bummer!”
With some cropping from another photo, I was able to get a closer look at a side view to show off their unique markings.
I would have been disappointed if I had missed seeing these magnificent creatures that still roam wild on the prairies.
