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.

    Bummer? Ha ha pun intended, right? Beautiful animals, Anneli. So glad you were able to pull over safely and get a few photos. They look so different from any other that I’ve seen. Thanks for sharing these photos! Be safe on your continuing adventure. Hugs.

      I was thrilled to see them. But wouldn’t it have been nice if you had been there with your camera? You are the expert in taking photos of this type of animal, judging by your impressive collection of reindeer photos.
