Oscar Dewhurst – Pronghorn

OD_USA2015-498Oscar writes: As we approached the end of our time in America, one animal I hadn’t managed to get any photos of was the Pronghorn. The second fastest land animal on the planet, it can run up to 54 miles per hour and despite closely resembling antelopes, isn’t actually in their family. On one of our last days, as we were driving back to the lodge, we spotted a small group of a male and three females in the long grass close to the road. We pulled over and got out so we could closer. Luckily they seemed totally unconcerned with my presence and let me get a few photos of them.
