Pronghorn : Week 3

New Mexico, VLA

I simply loved how each of these pronghorn sheep were watching every move that I made. Not so much out o fear but curiosity. There were about 50 in this heard and this image captures 18 of them; an ear of one of pronghorn is visible just to the right of the frame.

This was taken just to the east of the VLA (Very Large Array) in New Mexico. This is best known for being the location of Elle's home (Played by Jodi Foster) in the Movie "Contact".

other sizes: small medium large original auto

The day was a best ugly and they were all positioned in high resolution configuration. I would prefer the low resolution config.

I've seen sheep pictures like this too (white, fluffy, normal-kind sheep). Very humerous to have them all staring at the camera.

Interesting that you didn't take any panos of the VLA.

Actually, they are sheep, pronghorn sheep to be precise:-) Also referred to as antelope.

...ummmm.... those aren't sheep, they're antelope....

nice shot, tho!
