Pronghorns and Mule Deer in Tetons

October 04, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Last evening in the Antelope Flats area we watched this male Mule Deer run across the prairie, raising all four feet over the tall grasses.  It's amazing how fast they can run.  At sunset they were the same color as the grasses.  Once they put their heads down to graze they disappear.  We also watched this male Pronghorn tending his herd.  If a female would go outside his determined perimeter he would chase them around and get them back together.  This female walked very near to us and looked up with the cutest eyes.  We noticed the females have little spikes on their heads where the males have the antlers. 

Today we watched the sunrise at Oxbow Bend again and a school bus was there before 6am when we arrived.  Several young people with cameras taking sunrise photos.  Nice to see so many budding photographers on a 26 degree morning.  It did get warmer today and was a high of about 50 degrees.  Very clear and beautiful.
