Now this was a real fun day! A nice sized herd of Antelope.
The guys were getting their herds together. The boys were trying to show who was king of the plains!! Didn't see any fighting just alot of chasing!!

I was going to crop this but, I like the little yellow flower in the far left bottom corner… :) Enlarge he looks cool!!!

On the chase to secure his herd!! Got some pretty serious muscles in his back legs!! Enlarge to see them…

The weaker of the males has to run without the girls!! Maybe next year!

The winner of all the girls!! You can see his fur is still fluffed up after the chase!!

The prize!!!

      Is it somewhere near you live? Amazing... I have to go to the zoo to see the "runners". Beautiful sunset lightning too!

      Gorgeous light on him! I like the little yellow flower too. I'm glad you kept it! Did you run after them?

      Great shots Sheri! I agree #1 does NOT need to be cropped! If this were my shot, I may even make that yellow flower POP even more! =)

      What camera, lens?
