    Cute rump and good of him to pose for you using the rule of thirds—or, good shot and composition!

  • Hi Jan, I agree about the cute rump! That white patch flares when they are signaling alarm, and it’s really something to behold… so it gets even cuter! (Hmmm, why haven’t I gotten a shot of that before?) It was good of him to stand still for a moment; the pronghorn can be nervous in parts of Wyoming; I had time to focus on him then switch the framing :-))). Thanks for stopping by! AMR
    p.s. Your landscapes are to die for!
