Photographer's Note

This pronghorn antelope was thirsty...very thirsty; otherwise he would never have ventured so close to
humans. Jeff, my host, drove me out into the far hinterlands of Cody one morning where he controlled access to irrigation canals that provided water to the ranches nearby. In all his years of so doing he had never seen a pronghorn approach to within 25 m. This guy approached to within 10 m! He stayed there drinking for the better part of 2 minutes while I filmed him. I was more flabbergasted than he was!
