Where do the deer and the antelope play? Also in South Dakota! Although my first glimpse of these creatures (which I suspected were antelope, but I had to look it up) was in Montana. After not seeing much wildlife at all at Glacier National Park, we spent the next night at a truck stop where this herd of antelope ran outside the window of the RV, twice! I couldn’t resist this photo of the Antelope Crossing.
With the city of Great Falls and the power lines in the background, I did a tight crop on the same herd the next time they ran by. They have remarkable endurance and can run 40 miles per hour for more for great distances.
Then again at Wind Cave National Park in South Dakota were more of these antelope known as “Pronghorns”. I took this portrait mid-day in quite harsh light, so the shot is not what I would like it to be.
This one is my favourite of the Pronghorn photos, although it was also taken mid-day.

AWESOME shots here Anne! I love that close-up detailed shot there of the pronghorn, that’s an incredible picture!
Wow, that buffalo looks fierce Anne, better stay well away!
Great images…Wind Cave NP must be beautiful.
