Pronghorn Up Close

How can I miss you if you won’t go away? (Thinks he!) »Buy This Photo!«

Another candid critter shot from the empty road between Cimarron and Rayado! Looks like this male is shedding his winter coat. I still don’t understand about the horns—just when they shed the outer covering—but you can see them fine here. The female version lacks the upward-turning point. It may not look it, but these are the fastest land mammals in the Western hemisphere. The official New Mexico state animal is the black bear (think Smokey), but you may never see one. These guys, on the other hand, are everywhere out on the plains.
