Prairie Madness


When you have a background like this, you move fast to find something, anything, to compose in front of it. Luckily, this is Yellowstone. And so finding wildlife high up in the hill country that makes up this side of the national park is pretty easy!

This large pronghorn buck was wrangling a small harem of ladies back and forth across this ridgeline. Gently navigating the random assortment of cacti that grow in this desert like grassland, we slipped into place just in time to capture this magnificent looking buck just minutes before the sun disappeared behind the mountain behind us and the world fell into shadow. Light and background. . . two elements that are more important that subject itself.
