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 of Bryce Canyon Utah

I have another photo of pronghorns on Flora and Fauna, from when Man and I were visiting the Carlsbad New Mexico area.  They were in a zoo-like setting.  We caught this one in the wild at Bryce Canyon National Park in early May 2011.  Note he/she has just about shed the winter coat, except for one strand hanging (dark in color).  I could not determine from some internet research if this was a male or female. Pronghorns are considered to be the first or second fastest land mammal in the Western Hemisphere.
