    Default These Young Antelope

    were very wary of me. I kept trying to circle them to get a direct head shot but they kept a close eye on me while constantly turning their backs to me in preparation for a quick escape.

    How very cruel of you to post these today, the first day of antelope season here in MT. I am stuck at home.

    All kidding aside, you did very well getting that close to these very skittish creatures. Usually, they are at break-neck speed if they spot you within a half mile.

    Nice photos EB

    Good stuff EB. I particularly like the feel of the second shot, the antelope loosks to be just about to bold.

    Love the shots. It appears that even in their relatively open terrain they still manage to get scarred up.

    I hope to go west of my location one day and have the opportunity to shoot them as well.

    Thank you. A camera is about all I use to capture animals these days. Afterall, that give me the opportunity to get them again on my next photo expedition.

    Thank you. I never hide from wildlife. I find that if I let them see me clearly and not look or walk directly towards them I can maneuver fairly freely in their company.

    Yep, I thought so too. He held his ground though for another minute or so.

    These are living in a generally well wooded area, though it doesn't show it in these images. I would have thought to see deer at this location rather than antelope.

    I like how clear and sharp they are. Also the true-to-life colors.

    Appreciate what we have, instead of worrying about what we haven't. Enjoy what is, before it isn't.

    Thank you. I don't search out animal shots, but I certainly do take them when opportunity offers if they cross my path while I'm doing landscapes. I am trying to keep the colors in my images as close to the actual colors I saw as possible. I want folks that go to any site that I've photographed to be able to recognize it immediately from my picture.
    Good shooting,

    Really nice .. and lucky to get some shots of them ..
    I had an opportunity to shoot them (with a camera) also a couple of years ago .. they were pretty close to the road and didnt mind me there at all .. they stayed about a half hour and it was awsome ..

    They also have round padded hooves for when they run .. they are not like Deer hooves ..

    Thank you. I didn't know about the hooves, but I guess it makes since given their high speed.
