Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Pronghorn, Living Desert State Park, Carlsbad, New Mexico

These are fascinating creatures, the signage told us they are the fastest American land mammal, they can run at speeds up to 70 MPH.  They can leap 20 feet, but, interestingly, cannot jump over a fence and will crawl under it instead. Their eyesight is something else too, as they can spot movement over 4 miles away.  Amazing!

They saw you coming, and posed for your shot. Very nice, and they are cute.
